Sound Advice for the Hayduke

We had breakfast at quirky "eklektica cafe"--wakame, eggs, brown rice and a sesame soy sauce. We sorted maps, read through Hayduke trail journals and loaded tracks onto GPS at the incredible Moab library--which has more public computers than I have ever seen at any small town library. They sell a t-shirt that says, "I came to hike but stayed for the library". I can believe it. We also drove down to Kane Creek Trailhead to scope out the start of our next hiking section south of Moab. Which big dirt parking lot does the trail really start from? WIth help from the GPS and a visit to the local BLM office for a map of mountain bike trails in the area we found out. The debate now was how much water to carry. Varying reports from previous hikers suggested a water source near mile 5 (the Colorado River--very silty with steep tamarisk encrusted banks) and in Lockhart Canyon 15 miles farther. The nearest for sure source is Indian Creek--30 miles. It will be a heavy trudge tomorrow for sure. We had Thai food for dinner--the last vegetables for 6 days until we hitch back to Moab from Needles. We will be entering Canyonlands National Park in the next section.
