It was a very windy night from 9pm on. Glad we guyed the tent. Slept in a bit  got hiking at 7:36am. The high winds continued all day. Filled water bottles at a cache close to Willow  Springs Road then continued to Hwy. 58.There were very few places to escape the wind and sun on this stretch. Had a 1.2 mile road walk to get to the Hwy 58 overpass where we could get a ride into Tehachapi. This was part of the PCT.  When we texted the # to get a trail angel we were told they were making their rounds. There were no cars entering the highway towards Tehachapi at this time. We were pleasantly surprised when a trail angel showed up within 15 minutes. She had cold water and banana bread. It was the best water we had ever tasted. She let us know the post office is 3 miles out of town and therefore took us there to get our packages. Unfortunately only one of our packages had arrived. We witnessed and experienced very rude customer service at this USPS location. We have asked Dawn to bounce our package to Kennedy Meadows so we don’t have to road walk 6 miles on our zero day. Our trail angel was very nice and helpful. She referred to Tehachapi which is in Kern county as “Kerntucky” the Kentucky of California. We checked into the Fairfield Inn and secured a 3rd night so we could have 2 “zeroes”. Our bodies and minds have been thrashed over the past 100 or so miles. We had pizza and beer with Nat Geo and Matt (aka Baloo) and met Sage and Double Ought Zero as well as Cougar today.
