Had a semi pleasant sleep in the weird boiler room. Besides a rat incident around midnight, chewing into Schweppes’s food bag, then him flailing around trying to exterminate it, waking Mason and I up. The rat got away…
I hit the trail at 6:30, with katana on my shoulders. With fast food on my mind, I blazed down the trail all morning, with one short break. Other than being incredibly windy, there was nothing exceptional about today. It was ridges and canyons, ridges and canyons, all the way to interstate 15, and McDonald’s.
We hiked so fast, we finished the more than 13 miles by 11:30. Katana rode the whole way, but by the time I set her down in Cajon, she was walking normally. We’re taking the rest of the day off, so it’ll be extra time for her to relax and recover.
I went completely overboard at McDonald’s, then subway, then Del Taco. I gotta hand it to them, they might be a little better than Taco Bell…
There’s some nasty weather in the area, and it’s snowing on the mountain we have to climb next, so we’re playing it by ear tomorrow. It’s the start of a 25 mile continuous climb up to 8,000, so we’re not taking it lightly if the weather is horrendous…
