Other than eating steak, chicken, chocolate, coconut pie, pizza and eggs, today was very low key. I did laundry, went to the post office and market, soaked my feet in Epsom salt, slept and sat in the hot tub. Just a typical zero day on the PCT.
I have some new blisters that require attention but other than that my body is feeling great. I ate about as much food as I could possibly consume and spent at least two hours napping in the afternoon. I left ALL of my clothing at the laundromat while I slept and was shocked to find it neatly folded when I went to pick it up hours later, by a guy too. Coincidently when I went to buy HEET for my stove Robin who picked me up on Hwy 18 last night came in. She even drove me down to the market. I’ll definitely be sending her a postcard from Wrightwood.
I still struggle with the transition from trail to town and back again. The town stops are definitely a motivator but it’s hard when you’re all clean and rested to repack your pack (which still smells super manky) with gear and a heap of food and imagine trudging it up the next section. It should take approximately 6 days to get to Wrightwood. Hopefully at the post office there I’ll be able to pick up my Muk Muk key ring that I ordered on eBay!
