MikeD - PCT - May 14, 2013 - Back On The Trail
Got a ride back to the trail by George. Very nice guy...81 yrs young, still
flies his Cessna. Retired school principal and head of local PCT trail

Holy Toledo was it windy! Felt like when you put your head out the window
of a car going 60. No wonder they put all those wind turbines in this area.

By coincidence, Jersey Joe was camped in the same area as me. He is doing
great, learning a lot. For instance, he lightened his pack weight by 16
lbs, he has apps to refer to, and he is planning better.

Did a couple of hours night hiking. Started on trail about 4, set camp up
10:30. I didn't like it...nothing to see and you have to go slower, the
trail is sometimes hard to follow.

So, to try to mitigate the wind, I set up in the middle of some shrubs. It
helped but still I didn't sleep well because of that constant wind!
