I walk the last 1/2 mile down the dirt road to my Cima Dome campsite for one last night in Mojave National Preserve
Date: April 25, 2006, 15h42
I stop in at Kelso Depot to buy a souvenir t-shirt and donate my half-full propane bottle to someone who can use it
I'm not allowed to carry the propane bottle on tomorrow's Amtrak bus and train trip. I chat with the ranger on desk duty, but don't have to bother him to let me in to the downstairs closet again to fill up my water.
It turns out that I still have enough water to last until I reach Baker.
