In the morning we were brewing a pot of strong coffee and taking down the tent when Hutch pulled up. He was headed off up Hwy. 12. He showed us his radio set up in his car. Beside him on the passenger seat was a keypad. He uses Morse Code to communicate with distant friends and family as he travels. Hutch may be travelling solo but he is never alone. He is an interesting man, and it was our great pleasure to have had the chance to meet him.
We sipped our coffee in the crisp cool air and drank in the scenery as we loaded the car after our last camping night.
