PCT Mile: 558.51
It was another early morning of hiking with only 4 hours of sleep. Up at 2:30, and on the trail by 3. I had about 3 hours of night hiking before dawn, and enjoyed another beautiful sunrise. The climb was not overly difficult but it was constant. I reached the top by 7am. As I came around the bend in the trail, I heard “Trail Dad!” from hikers sitting in chairs! Trail Angels again! There were people there with coffee, apples, cookies, and water.
I needed the break. Robert, one of the Trail Angels, came over and said, “Are you Kevbo? I’ve been following you since Campo.” He then proceeded to talk about some of my past experiences. That was so cool. Robert, you made my day!
I will be offline for a few days. The next stretch of desert is the most remote on the trail, 135 miles. Wish me luck!
See you at mile 702!!!!
