[pct-l] Trout Lake, Oregon

Last year it was the easiest hitch both ways -- maybe 1 minute.  Everyone in town seemed to be "trying" to make this a trail town and the TrailAngel in town was asking how to get into the different publications.  And the GAS station was asking what kind of stuff hikers would want --- he had a bunch of car camping gear.  Nice huckleberry SHAKEs and decent country store.

I stayed in the room at the back of the grocery store when i went through in 
2003. It was my least expensive stay in all of Washington. And the grocery 
store will buy all the huckleberries you haven't eaten.
I hitched in and out. Very little traffic but it only took about 20 min to 
catch a ride.
