Zero #4: Tehachapi resupply

written May 26, 2017 @ 01:06 AM after hiking 0.00 miles

Today was zero #4, and my second consecutive zero -- it felt amazing to not have to pack my bag and hike anywhere. Is this what my life used to be like?

There was really only one chore: resupply with enough food to get us to Kennedy Meadows, 136 miles away. That turns into a lot of heavy food, even when repackaged into freezer bags and all excess discarded. Add onto that the fact that leaving Tehachapi is the driest stretch of the PCT -- at the worst spot, we should be prepared to go 35 miles without water.

After hitching all over town to hit the stores we needed for resupplying, including picking up a tennis ball and a foam roller to keep my knee in check, it was time for dinner and a Harry Potter movie marathon. It's so easy to not hike, but I also want to get back out there where life is simple.

Fried catfish for dinner.
