Day 156 - 9/1/18

September 2, 2018

 

A “zero” for us. No alarm but still woke by 5:30. Had a nice breakfast then set up our four season tent in a grassy strip across from the restaurant. We needed to see how our current yellow foam pads covered the floor of the tent. We discovered they were just fine even though the tent is larger than our three season tent. Afterwards we picked up some additional supplies for our trek to White Pass, WA. We also redid the lumbar padding on my pack to help with the heavier load I’ll be carrying (8 days food). Jerry got some snacks for the televised Husky game. This is the first time in 5 months we have turned on a television. He is so passionate about the teams he loves he only watched for a short time and turned the TV off. However, when he saw the score was within 2 points resumed watching. I spent most of the day uploading videos to YouTube; a laborious, painful task. It took a great deal of assistance from Fawn in Seattle to get this done. Slow WiFi makes the process even slower. In Oregon we discovered:
1. It is a “dry” state in regards to water in late summer.
2. Surprised by how quickly we hiked this state compared to CA.
3. Loved the quality of the trail.
4. Loved the gentle terrain.
5. Discovered several peaks we want to climb.
6. Discovered that CA isn’t the only place that has an overcrowded PCT.
7. Were sad to see so much burned out areas.
8. Even when you have hiked over 1692 miles injuries still occur.
9. Everyday is important as it sets you up for the following day. (Applies to entire trail). This is a life lesson that exemplifies itself on the trail in spades.
10. Discovered how quickly time can fly by.
We started hiking during a full moon and have hiked through six full moons. We discussed our resupply box at Snoqualmie Pass with Fawn. This will get us to Stevens Pass. Thinking about a place so close to home is exciting us. Home is like a magnetic pull.
Had a nice dinner and ended the day with full bellies.
