    Before I set out on the Mexican border, I used a truck to store water reserves at critical points. So here too. One of my two water canisters, labeled with my name, is half empty when I arrive and there are heart stickers on it outside.“Who steals water and then sticks a heart on the canister?” When I tell the story to LarryBoy, who has now caught up with me again, I promptly reap my trail name: Heart Bandit! We are practically flying through the Black Hills and I enjoy the colorful spring flowers that make the desert shine in purple, yellow and orange. Lupins, golden poppies, and a variety I forgot the name of.At the Beehive Well, a large water tank in which a dead bird and thousands of dead bees swim, we spend the short night together with three other hikers. It goes on at 5 in the morning, because it will be a long, hot day without any shade. And the nearest water source is around 15 kilometers away.
