Today we worked strategies for the next 49 miles through the LA Aquaduct and into Tehachapi. We decided to do a night hike beginning at 12:30 am. There will be no water for the first 17 miles and no shade until then. The terrain is flat so hope to make decent miles. A scale at Hiker Town shows Jerry has lost 25#! I have lost 5#. Today Jerry gave away half of his breakfast! Other hungry hikers were happy to take it off his hands. We met Cool Blue, chatted with Sophie and James as well as Matt and Nat Geo. All we really want at this time is cold drinks and to be clean. We are heading out with 7.5 liters of water between us.
