lenr - PCT - May 5, 2007 - What A Day!
The day started out ordinary enough. Up and out with breakfast down by the water fountain and then off to put a few miles in. The wind started up and was blowing me about as I crossed the desert. A few miles into it and I noticed my map case was missing. Panic, I put my pack down and ran a mile back looking for it, I found it, the wind had loosened a knot. All's fine I started out again and another two miles out in the desert, and now I can't find my GPS. I had it securely fastened to a strap loop. I again put my pack down and ran another two miles and found it along the trail. Examining it I fiound the stiching on the belt loop on the case came out. Two navagation aids in one day lost and found. Yikes! What's next? Thankfully the rest of the day was uneventful. I hiked past the wind generators and could hear them whirring. Through the desert up over a mountain and down to White Creek for dinner. After dinner I put in a couple of more hours and camped at Mission Creek.
