The Pink Flamingo (Oasis) Cache

27 miles!

We got up at 4:30am this morning, ate a quick cereal and bread breakfast and were on the road at 5:20am. The first 5 miles or so were road walk - 1 mile from the house to the PCT, 2 miles on the actual trail, and another 2 when we missed the highway crossing and made a detour. Eventually we got back on the PCT and started climbing. We did that until lunchtime, when we stopped atop the ridge with Sophie, Mark and Craig. At that point, we had put in 19 miles - pretty solid work for a morning! After lunch and a short break, we headed downhill, passing Totally Rachel and Wandering Jew. About 2 miles later, we came across Craig and Riddle at the Oasis Cache. It was such an awesome spot - chairs, shade, decorations, water, and a cooler full of cold sodas! We spent about an hour there. After the cache, we pushed on another 8 miles. George went ahead with Craig, walking fast/running. I went at a more leisurely pace. Along the way I got to hold a horned lizard! It was so cute! At the end of the trail for the day (I arrived ~ 6pm, and George around 5:30pm), Joe Anderson picked us up and took us to his house. Tons of people were there - Apple Pie, Yogi, Hammer and Diesel, Rest Stop, Geek, and others. Troll and Oblivious rolled in a little later. Terrie Anderson made us all taco salad for dinner. As soon as we were done eating, George and I went straight to bed. 27 miles today - a new record!
