his english was not very good but better than my japanese. we talked, laughed and pointed most of the way down 447.
we got to empire, and i realized that he didn't travel with much...just a pack...so i asked him what he would eat...and he pulls out this loaf of bread. and then i asked him what he would drink, and he showed me a couple of litres of water.
i felt guilty and wondered whether i should take him to the playa. but at the gas station, he pulls out this wad of bills, and buys a couple of things. we talked some more about what he needed for bm, and i explained about the bus to town. he agreed that he would use it, and get whatever he needed.
well, i let him off at the gate, and he bought his ticket...last i saw him was hiking into the dust.
i don't really think he knew what he was in for...

Small backpack, liter of water and ashes falling out of both ears. Scary shit up close but the entertainment value from 20' away was outfuckingstanding!

There's a glacier on Mt. McKinley known amongst mountain rescue folks as "The Orient Express" due to the quantity of dead Korean climbing teams all tangled up in their ropes at the bottom. It's a good place to collect free climbing equipment, parkas, etc.

I would say easily 10-20 percent showed up with nothing including shoes.
I do hope those people stay the hell away from black rock city.
