I was reading this message at my computer when I remembered the look of 
shock on the tourist's faces when I got on the bus in Red's Meadow for the 
ride up to Mammoth Lakes and they smelled me and my clothes. They moved to 
the back of the bus, as far away from me as they could get. I didn't blame them

I had not bathed, or washed my clothes with soap since Walker Pass.

Since I was hiking on snow much of the time, breaking the ice and dipping 
in the streams didn't seem like that good an idea. I didn't rinse out my 
clothes because I wore all that I had most of the time.
