Today I got a ride from my massage therapist at 8am.
Mark was a great guy, picked me up, gave me a 2 hour massage because my body was broken haha and only charged me for 1.5 hours, and then he dropped me off at Big 5 after.
That massage was absolutely amazing. 10/10 recommend him to other hikers who go through Tehachapi.
Once I got to big 5 I bought a few dehydrated meals and a stuffed turtle I couldn’t leave behind.
A turtle named turbo.
Then I walked to Walmart to start my resupply shopping. I texted Abel and he met me there and we got some groceries to make enchiladas tonight for us. I CAN’T wait!
Once we got back home I realized I have almost triple the amount of food that I needed so I will try to return some tomorrow.
That’s what I get for resupplying while I’m hungry. Rookie mistake.
I started to organize my food and as soon I was finished I took a nap. After my nap Abel taught me how to make his enchiladas. Very simple recipe. They were SO GOOD!
We will have leftovers for tomorrow’s dinner so I’m excited for tomorrow already.
I went to bed a little sooner than usual tonight, very tired.
Tomorrow I get to trail again for my last leg of the desert, but today I have one last zero!
Abel dropped me off around 9 to the bakery so I could get some food and then I got a hitch to Walmart to return some of my food and get bug spray. Still no luck on new shorts so I’ll have to sew up the hole in mine to last these last desert miles.
Abel got me from Walmart and we went back to the house.
I wrote up all my blogs for my website from days 1-7 and uploaded them. Then I helped Abel with his Garmin questions, and took another nap.
Once I woke up I finished days 8-15 and then ate some left over enchiladas.
After dinner Kim and I played some games together (she introduced me to my new favourite game! I love the trail, last year I learned 3 games that I hadn't played and now I've got two more I love from this year)
Abel and I cleaned her car for her after, I was very happy to do so and give back a bit after everything they have done for me.
Abel and I and Kim had a drink that night and chatted for like an hour before I went to sleep.
7am tomorrow I wake up to pack for my ride at 8am to Walkers Pass.
