Just completed this section got of trail Saturday. A lot of Mosquitoes and
bad tasting water.
Meet a lot of thru hikers.
Rader, Scote, Iceman, True and her dog Timber. Meadow Mary & Billy Goat,
Gordon & Sue, Mt. Manna, Mt. Rose, Old Steady, Young Steady, Laundry Mat, Magnum,
Cloud Walker, The Killer Bees from Cincinnati Ohio,
And one S. bound 1-80. There were more but can't remember their names.
Some of us had Pizza at Route 58. Man it is inspiring to see these young
people doing 30 plus miles a day. Everyone looked great. True did the AT last year
with her dog Timber and it looks like she will finish the PC. Billy Goat and
his wife Meadow Mary do a lot to help others on the trail. Mary has an RV and
hangs out at the trail head passing out fruit and water..
I want to thank the two young women who picked me up at Elk Lake and drove me
to Bend. At Bend I got picked up by a homeless person. This is the second
time last fall I was picked up by a homeless women at Truckee and drove me to
Tahoe. While standing there hitch hiking a homeless person came up and offered me
a candy bar. I walked into a store in Bend, Or. that sells Hot Tubs to ask
direction and the manager told me to get out. "They don't want homeless people
in there store" It was right across from Jake's Truck stop. Give him the finger
if you go by the store. I returned the favor by picking up a homeless man
while driving back
