We woke up around 8am and went down to breakfast. Then the inn keepers at 10:30 drove us to Stacy’s house (our trail angel from before) to pick up our stuff we stored at her house, and then he drove us back to the inn.
Then we did our laundry and went to a couple gear shops. After that I went to sleep and Woodstock went to town to find a fanny pack.
Around 3:30 she came back and woke me up from my snooze. I showered and we got ready to go to Liberty bar and get some happy hour drinks and food. We made it with 15 mins to spare and quickly bought some fried pickles and two drinks each.
After an hour flame joined us and we had some more drinks. Then we met a past pct hiker from 2019 named Hot Shot.
He bought us a couple drinks and we had a shot of tequila and chatted for a while!
Around 11 we went home and went to sleep.
Today I woke up superrrr hungover. I slept in as long as I could and then we went down for breakfast.
Then I showered and we went to the dog store to weigh ourselves (128 now), and then went to the library. I had to work on my blog for a bit so we stayed there for just over an hour.
After the library we went to resupply at Von’s and met up with Flame and Riptide.
I went with them to lunch at a Pho place and Woodstock went to Carl’s Jr.
The noodles and thai tea really hit the spot for me. Then I went back to the inn to organize my resupply and write some post cards. After all of us finished our chores we all met up and got our trolley to the shuttle.
We made it with 3 minutes to spare getting to the second bus that takes us to the shuttle.
Once we got to red’s we set up at a campsite, joining Nate a JMT hiker we met on the bus.
Then we went and enjoyed the hot springs for a bit up just past our campsite.
Dinner next and I just snacked on chips and cheese with hot chocolate because I was still full from the Pho.
Played a quick game of bull shit which flame won and then we went to sleep :)
