I woke up early this morning to take a shower before the others got up. Thought it'd be nice to get in one last shower before I leave town. Then we all got up at seven to get free breakfast at the hotel. It was basic but good bc it was free. I had an apple, banana, bagel and yogurt. After breakfast, I went back to the room to get the things I was sending back home and had to walk all the way to the post office bc the trolley wasn't running yet.
I saw Whitney Shoeston at the PO sending his ice box home. I met him last night with nick and co. He had put together two priority boxes to get the ice axe to fit. So I copied him and also shoved in all the extra clothes I had been carrying around all this time. I also finally picked up the box marinka had sent me! She's from the Netherlands and runs a paleo blog and wanted to send me paleo snacks. Everything looked so healthy and delicious! Can't wait to try them on trail.
After PO duties, I walked all the way to the village bc I was having buyers remorse about my sunglasses. And then I got there and the store wasn't even opened. So I walked back to our room to organize the rest of my food and pack. We finally checked out and took trolley down to vons. I went back to the outfitter to get a bandana and met the others at the shipping store. Then we got lunch at the Mexican market. I got a California burrito and it was so good. The rest of the afternoon, we loitered back at black velvet coffee.
A game, undercover, all smiles and I all headed back to red meadows via the three buses around four. We accidentally took the Devils postpile route but got back on the pct and camped about four miles in. There are def bugs around again. It was so good to get back in my tent again, as always. Tomorrow I think we are just setting up for the pass. My legs still need time to adjust again. Undercover was worried that I needed new shoes since I haven't had new ones since big bear so that means it's going well over 700 miles. Eep. I don't know why I didn't order them sooner. My feet have been feeling fine and they look like they're in great shape. And for some reason I bought 2% Colby jack and it was so sick and rubbery. They didn't have the full fat and I really wanted Colby. Never buy reduced fat again.
