When our plans to reach Burgdorf Hotspring for the 4th of July were threatened by poor planing [not enough gas/too many drinks the night before] we decided to hitchhike. Well, first we took a quick nap, then we decided to hitchhike. After a few hours of unsuccessfully trying to convince passing teams of cyclists to divide our bodies and packs amongst them for an 'extra hill workout' we had a quick pow-wow and asked the universe to send us some "cool cats to ride with". Not 10 minutes later a dump truck pulling a bobcat-dozer on a trail pulled over, the driver stood up and yelled over the truck
"You girls want to ride on the dirt pile?"
"Heck yeah we do!"
As I got within viewing distance of the cab I saw this bobcat looking back at me from the passengers seat. Figuring we'd already made it this far we rode to the hot spring and spent the rest of the day soaking and getting to know our new friends, Rob and Mokave the domesticated Bobcat.
