涙の大雨警報(徒歩日本縦断#20)

20日目の今日は八雲のさらんべ公園で起床

東屋の下で夜降った雨に濡れることなく寝れた

そんな今日は雨予報。

八雲の町も今にも降りそうに曇っているが、まだ降ってはいない。

「今のうち」と言わんばかりに早めの出発

今日は34キロ先の森町までだ

途中で雨に打たれるのを覚悟して万全の防水機能を装備してスタート

歩き始めてすぐに、八雲のセコマに寄ると

次々と八雲の方が声をかけてくれて差し入れを頂く。なんとありがたい限りか…

これから雨に打たれるであろう修羅の道を頑張れそうな気がする

思えば去年も長万部→八雲→森は大雨に降られたが、今年もそのフラグを回収してしまいそうな…そんな嫌な予感を胸にしまいつつ歩く

そんなフラグを神様はしっかり回収したがるようで、徐々に雲行きは怪しくなり

開始5キロほどで遂に降り始め

「まだこのくらいだったら行ける!神様頼むぅこれ以上やめくれぇぇぇ」

なんて神頼みしながら歩いてたら

歩き始めて7キロでこれでもかというほど土砂降り。神様はお笑いをわかってるらしい。

しかも逃げ込む場所が稲荷神社の軒下しか周りになかったのもまた神との接触を感じる

午前9時に逃げ込んでから、「雨よ止めとは言わないから弱マレェェ」念じ続けるが、

1時間たっても…

2時間たっても…

止む気配はない。

むしろ雨は強くなっていき

MAXキャホォォとなった

「いやこんなんで歩けるかい!」

心の中でそうノリツッコミを入れると

駄目押しの大雨警報

今横石の頬が濡れてるのは

果たして軒下に吹き込んでくる雨なのか

それとも悲しみの涙なのか

それは誰にもわからなかった

そして冷えた身体を温める方法もなく…

各々寒さに震えていた

横石は手をズボンに突っ込んであっためながらひたすら寝て耐え

タクマはウィスキーで身体をあたためてた

「寝袋使えばええやん?」と思うかもしれないが、吹き込んでくる雨で寝袋を濡らすわけにはいかないので無理だった

目的地まで残り24キロも残る中、結局12時まで足止めを食らった。

「ワンチャンここで野宿か?」と思ったが、流石にもう少し歩きたい

とりあえず日暮れ前に目的地に辿り着けるデッドラインは12時だと思っていたから、12時に雨が弱まったタイミングで雨の中強行突破を始める。もしダメだったら8キロほど先の落部という集落で野宿すればいいと思っていた

歩き始めは雨も弱く、「あ、このままいけんじゃね?!」とか思ってたけど

小1時間もすると雲は真っ黒になり

風速10mを優に超える強風の中、大粒の雨が弾丸のように叩きつける

しかも雨宿りする場所もなく、もちろん写真を撮る余裕もなく、ひたすら無になって落部を目指した。

びしょ濡れになりながら落部に辿り着くと涙のセイコーマートが…

ここで神様のようなカップ麺味噌味を食らいつく。なぜ味噌ラーメンがいいかというと、汁まであったまるからだ

そしてセコマで30分ほど休憩すると

奇跡的に雨が止み、青空も見えた

青空の大切さは旅をしてみないとわからないものだ。この時は本当に嬉しかった。

空は今までの鬱憤を晴らすかのように青くなる

ついルンルンになって足取りも軽やかになる

ふと後ろを見るとタクマが完全に視界からいない。

いつもは視界から見える範囲では後ろにいるのに今回に関しては全く見えなくて

「あれ?大丈夫かな?」

なんて心配してたら

文字通り「糞みたいな」LINEがきた

さらに

自分のウンコを持ってるとほのめかす発言が飛んできた為、このまま死ぬ気で函館まで逃げようと思ってしまった。危ない危ない。

まぁでも野糞できるくらいには余裕も出てきたって事で少し安心しながら、結局2キロほどタクマとの間も空いたので今日は目的地の道の駅集合にすることにした。

てことでここから10キロほど1人旅

気ままに歩きながら、久しぶりの晴れの風景を楽しみながら、残り3キロほどになった時、後ろから聞き慣れた声がした

振り返ると

なんと初日に泊まったライダーハウスみどり湯で出会った日本一周してる高校生に再会したのだ。「Theやんちゃ高校生」って感じだけど、なぜか応援したくなる不思議な奴にまた再会できた。嬉しい限りだ。

高校生の目線で思いっきり日本を見てきてほしい。「楽しんで行ってこい!」と笑顔で見送って横石もまた歩き出す

結局目的地の道の駅には5時40分に着いた

雨宿りから時速5キロで歩き続けたことになる。

だいぶ早くなってきたなぁ

タクマはそのあと6時20分にゴール

明日は天気も回復するみたいだから北海道の最終盤も楽しむぞぉ

歩行距離 34キロ

北海道 八雲町→森町

総歩行距離 619キロ
