Little bit of a late start, but out by 0800. Slept right through the thunder and lightening, earplugs and a buff over the eyes helps wonders when you're exhausted.
Hiked pretty hard all morning, covered the distance faster than I thought I could. Was supposed shuttle out of here today because of the fires but the shuttle never came. Ended up eating and drinking a delicious trail magic picnic all afternoon so not all was lost.
Sat around and talked with the other hikers as they came to the site. Most of the hikers were south bounders, so it was good to meet others who I'll probably run into again further down the trail.
Didn't plan on getting further today on the trail, so it was OK that I sat around all afternoon. Would have preferred to be on the other side of the fire already but it looks like we have a ride lined up for tomorrow morning, so that's a plus.
Will be hanging out with a childhood friend of mine soon. Might be seeing him tomorrow, need to get some cell service and figure out when we'll be meeting up.
