Day 30

Mile 341-341 Most comfortable couch I ever slept on.  I got up and started my day with french toast made by Lipstick and some freshly plucked berries. I could get used to this. Lipstick wanted to make her famous lasagna for tonight so we got in the car, dropped Nancy of at her quilting club,…

Day 29

Mile 318-341 We woke up in our lovely suite and tried to find a way to get back to the pct. We didn’t see the sidetrail anywhere but I saw on my maps that at mile 323 the pct joins Highway 173 for about a mile. Since that highway was next to our campground we…

Day 28

Mile 306-318 Hard to put a day like this into words but I will try anyway. So I hiked out pretty early and after a mile Pedro caught up to me. Turned out they camped at the exact same place but they couldn’t see my tent and I hadn’t seen or heard them either. We…

Day 27

294-306 We headed out a little earlier today. Hiked until splinter’s cabin parking lot and found Lipstick again. I love her. She’s always giving me stuff. Bagels, almond butter (delicious btw), toothpaste pills (a little weird), sudoku papers, even a place to rest once I reach Cajon Pass. She was leaving the trail for a…

Day 26

285-294 Woke up around 7 and ate breakfast at our wonderful table. Still so lazy we hung around there way to long and headed out at 10.30 AM. The trail was very kind. Sunny with just enough wind and a nice levelled path. I was getting a little scared because I was out of water…

Day 24

Mile 210-210 Waking up still very tired, I told Carlos and Pedro I was going to stay another night. Since our zero yesterday involved running errands around town all day I was in dire need of a day of doing absoluteley nothing. And that’s exactly what I did. They decided to stay another night as…

Day 23

Mile 210-210 Since sleeping in isn’t an option anymore for my new biorhythm, me and the mexicans started our chores early. Post office for Carlos, getting way to much hikerfood for me at Von’s (where the cashier swiped her Von’s member card so I could get a big discount, really everyone wants to help us…

Day 22

Mile 205-210 I was completely exhausted. With my last strength I got my pack ready and stumbled to Ziggy & The Bear.  The wind kept knocking me in the side and all I could think about was sleeping. After a lifetime the house suddenly appeared. In front of it was a hiker named Legend who…

Day 21

Mile 190-205 Waking up early wasn’t so hard because I kept rolling off my matress. I started my day slowly. By the time I finally had all my gear organised I looked over my shoulder and suddenly my mexican friends appeared. I was thrilled. They waited for me to get ready and we hiked out…
