PCT Day 25| I woke up early in Tehachapi at the airport. Still in food Coma from the Chinese buffet I walked over to the bakery for coffee. I quickly made friends with other hikers and we opted to show off our @thru.pack. Tehachapi had such great food and trail angeles It was hard to leave. I somehow accomplished a double nero as you can do| 2 miles .. Ps. I lost my Melanzana hoodie at the best western pool and rumor has it that a hiker might of snagged it. If you have any info let me know. The hoodie has sentimental value and i would def pay to get it back. 😉
I hitched to Bishop for a resupply and was able to catch up with the friends who were just ahead. In town, the priority stops were McDonald’s, the Hostel California, the laundry, and the grocery store. The next day, we hitched back to Independence and then got a ride to the trail head from a geology professor who owned a cabin nearby. Climbing back up Kearsarge pass was a long 5 mile haul from 9k to 11-something thousand feet. Over the top, though, the scenery was beautiful and the light on the pinnacles was gorgeous as the sun set. #pct2018 #pacificcresttrail
The people and view of NorCal have been wonderful. Got a free ticket to High Sierra music festival. People keep stopping in the middle of the street to talk to us about the pct. a landscape in transition is leaving me wondering what’s around the next bend. 📷 @homelessjake #pct #tinypackcrew #pacificcresttrail #onthescoot #pct2018 #thruhiker #dirtbag #hikertrash #takelessdomore #onthescoot
This is the best hitchhiking sign I’ve made so far. It’s also only the third one I’ve even had the chance to make. Most of the time we’re hitching from a trailhead with nothing more than our thumbs. But this morning all of the things fell apart when the only rental car company in Bishop told us they didn’t have any cars left; and just like that a four hour drive turned into a six hour hitchhiking bonanza! – All to get to Reno, except we’re not going to Reno tonight, we’re going to Dunsmuir. Which means that now that we’re in Reno and can actually get a rental car, we still have a four hour drive and an hour long Lyft to get back to the trailhead. It’s definitely going to be one of our least restful rest days. – I can’t be mad, wonderful things come together and fall apart with hilarious frequency on the trail and the only thing to do is deal with it. If you try and desperately hold onto the plans you’ve made you’ll only hurt yourself. Better to laugh it off and drink a celebration milkshake, being grateful for Julie who lent us the marker and let us crash at her place, being grateful for Ian who is letting us store a bunch of junk at his place while we’re on the trail, and of course being grateful for the four people who gave us rides and good conversation today. Bonus points because nobody even tired to steal my kidney! #PCT #PCT2018 #ThruHike #StarmansNorCalFlip #Sierra #pcting #P3Hikers #PCT1968 #FindYourTrail #hitchhiker #PacificCrestTrail #SheExplores @pctassociation @ospreypacks @salomon
