Day 81 - 6/18/18 ( flip SOBO from Ashland, OR to Lone Pine, CA)
June 19, 2018
Mile 1506.2 to 1501.2 for 6 miles. A “nearo” for us. Elevation increase of 1636 and decrease of 1098. Total PCT miles 963.56. Trail quality was great to I-5 where we quickly got a hitch into Dunsmuir. Hiking at 6am and in Dunsmuir by 10am. We had a very warm, muggy night. Have not been this low in elevation since Seiad Valley. Had a great breakfast and were pleasantly surprised when the motel let us check in early. Did our laundry, scrubbed our sleeping pads and picked up a resupply box. Will be adding some more padding to my waist belt as it once again has gotten too big. Jerry was grumpy all morning because he did not realize that we had so much uphill to do right out of camp. His mood changed when we got our ride into town. Once again it was a solo female who gave us a ride. We love these women who take a chance and give us a lift.
