Caught me lunching by the trail at about mile 1028, climbing out of the canyon of the east fork of the Carson River. They came up the trail grinning. Honeybun had a speaker pumping a Jamaican tune out of his pack.
He gave me a fist-bump as he came up the trail. Miner said something nice about my spot under a tree. They were moving fast.
“It’s a reggae version of “Tom’s Diner!” said Honeybun, as they moved out of sight up the trail.
