back on the trail!
I am finally back on the trail and KO is over and thanks to 2 amazing trail angels from Oregon - Lego'laus and Pocahontas who will be attempting their own thru next year to celebrate their 26th anniversary and Pocahontas turning a young and spy 50. I hikes 9 miles from Barrel Springs through some awesome meadows and rolling oak fields. I felt like I was walking in the foothills of Amador county, which helped in curing the small bout of homesickness I have been feeling the last couple days. I need to stay in WS tonight so I can pick up a couple packages at the post office when they open in the morning. I am camping tonight under some oaks with three guys from the east coast who have all hikes the AT before: chef, funk, and trooper. Good guys. We all haven about 40 miles to make by Wed so we can eat at the Paradise Cafe on the way to Idyllwild for the weekend and resupply! Great day, great weather, great vibes, so amazing to be back on the trail and heading north!!
