JellyBean's Granny

MeToo - PCT - Mar 5, 2014 - Day 1
The weather was perfect today as JellyBean’s Granny dropped me off at the Southerner Terminus. As we were saying our good-byes when up walked Mark Fishbaugher talked for a while. At 7:21 Mark and I left a slow walk, talking about everything that has to do with hiking the PCT on our way to Campo. Once we got to Campo Mark’s wife meet there.9:30: After picking up some suplies at the little store in Campo I walked along a small road back to the PCT. along the road was a small stream with frogs and birds and the sound of the running water. It was a plesant day and all was good. Returning to the PCT at mile 2 where the road crossed the PCT,  started walking North. next stop mile 10 for the night. Along the way, I rested under a tree at the creek. At this point there was no water in the creek as happens in the deseret, the creek was now under ground. Get water whal you can. While resting in the shade of the tree I could hear the sound of of the wind and thought for a whall what my cowokers were doing at this time, and I sleeped for a whal. At mile 10 I made camp for the night along the trail with a big flat rock as my frend.
