Getting out of town is tough. This will be said many more times during this trip I'm sure. I actually set my alarm today. 6:10. I had a lot of things I needed to take care of... Before anything else was going to the Grizzly Cafe this morning.
Next I needed to figure out how much food I needed to buy and what needed to be shipped home. Then actually go to those places. I relaxed at the lodge for a bit and had some lunch. As noon passed, I figured i should start packing up. This took a while as my pack had exploded all over the room.
Around 2:30 I was all packed up and on my way. I met up with the group at the grocery store and Mr. Clean (formerly Viet, will be referred to as MC from now on), ST and I caught a hitch with Rocky. She is the manager at the Cedar Lodge in town. She also gave us a full guided tour along the San Andreas Fault, which runs nearly directly through Wrightwood. Once again, no pictures. Only put in 4.6 miles on the day. More importantly we got out of town. This always takes time. A little more charge on the cellphone, get talking now with some people, etc.
I learned a different way of setting up my tent, tarp tent style.
