Woke up at 5 am... Needed to go pee, then I decided I wanted to eat my last piece of pizza. They have a scale here and it said I was 147lbs. That means I am down 10lbs from when I left Colorado. There are some here that have lost 15lbs. Spent the morning eating, cleaning gear, resting, stretching, etc... A lot of people went into town for breakfast. I stayed back with hopes of catching an early ride to REI. Unfortunately I didn't catch that ride till the afternoon. There were a lot of people wanting to go.
At REI I picked up some freeze dried food, a food bag, and hand warmers. I looked at a new backpack and would have bought it if they had it in my size... Probably for the best. I walked out of the store having only spent $50. I was proud of myself as I could have easily bought a bunch of neat gadgets I don't need (or want to carry).
Back at Hiker Heaven, there was a whole lot of relaxing going on. It was awesome.
For dinner the group went out to the local Mexican restaurant. I ate way too much food and I could literally feel my stomach stretching. I can use to calories.
When we returned from dinner, the camp was setting up for a picture. We all lit up our tents with our headlamps and then went and stood around the fire. Grabbed it off the pct class of 2016 Facebook page.
Spent the rest of the evening organizing for a early morning departure tomorrow.
