90’s, Sunny, clouds in PM

Today we slept in. It was pretty hot in the hotel room when we went to sleep but really chilly in the AM. I had at least 3 donuts for breakfast! We simply did logistics all morning then Ed and I went to Subway for the second time. Next we went to the market and shopped for food. I didn’t get everything I wanted so I had to go to the gas station across the street.

Supplying was tougher than I was lead to believe it would be. I have my folks sending food to the next 4 places so that should make things easier.

Later in the day UB got picked up by her cousin so it’s now just Ed, Wounded Knee and I. We went to a small café (Still Life Cafe) here in town and I had a great cheeseburger and shoe string fries.

Now we’re just hanging out and getting ready to leave tomorrow. I can’t wait to get back in the woods but I’m also not looking forward to the 5 miles climb with 6 days of food.

We stayed up till almost 11 PM for the second night in a row. Not much else went on but some logistics and eating of food.

Scatman 2011- I did go to the library to send emails.  Thanks to the Gates Foundation, the little town of Independence had computers in their library.  The clothes I asked the nice couple on top of Mt. Whitney to send would be coming in the next day.  I worried all day they might not arrive.  The hotel had a grill and we had ourselves a little BBQ.  I can’t say I’ve done that much on the trail.
