Hopped on the bus back to Torrey Pines last night. Changed into my base layer just after sunset in the bathrooms then crossed the road. A little higher up because I thought maybe the state parks truck was watching me. As soon as the hill was between us, blocking their view, I scooted across and down to my campsite.
Another quiet nights sleep.
I was picked up at 9:30am by Scout, a PCT trail anel and board member so that I could stay with him and his wife Frodo. She will drive me to the southern terminus of the PCT tomorrow.
2007 thru hikers.
They really are unbelievable. They host hundreds of hikers every year, I’m their first for 2016, and this gives me a chance to resupply, print my permit and water report, take a shower, do laundry and even cut my hair.
Granted, they were beard trimmers so I really only did the sides and it looks horrible, but c’mon, that’s amazing. Truly great people.
Oh yeah, and they cooked dinner. Talk about being spoiled.
So I’m charged, clean and well, I’ll pack in the morning. 5am breakfast to head out to the trail by 6am.
