It was a nice 10 mile hike to the Saufleys from the KOA. I started it at around 10:30am, hated the giant hill that started it off, then began to enjoy the trek down to the freeway. There was a tunnel under the freeway shaped like the PCT logo where we all spent a few minutes cooling off. There, we met some nice new folks who told us about a Mexican restaurant in Agua Dulce before the Saufleys' place. With new motivation, I killed the last few miles with Coyote and we drank excellent margaritas with Grasshopper, who had hitched from the KOA to the grocery store.
Walking into the trail angels' place, I saw Far Out, whom I thought had moved on, and was overjoyed. The whole damned family together at last. Somehow, I secured a cot and stayed awake comfortably under the stars. Then, my sense of urgency removed, I took a zero to update this blog, rest my foot and generally enjoy the good company.
