Zero in Kennedy Meadows
Today we're taking a zero day in Kennedy Meadows. Mercury left this morning, but the Jeffs, Alabama Jammer, Stick Kicker, Sleep Ninja, Jima, Pauline, Dave, John from Minnesota, and Doug all came in. We also met Laura's Dad, who is supporting them (Laura and Eric) through the previous section to make sure they don't run into any trouble.
Kennedy Meadows is a really neat place. I like it. There's really not that much here, but a general store with a snack bar, but it's great! There's a little hill out behind the store for hikers to camp on, and they'll run you a tab at the store and snack bar, which is cool, but dangerous. There's a couple of showers, and a washing machine, and a big porch that everyone hangs out on. If you sign up for it, they'll feed you dinner and put it on your tab. And then a little way down the street, is this place where we are now, "Tom's Internet Cafe." But there's no cafe, really. It's just an old Airstream trailer with 4 laptops and wireless internet. He doesn't charge for it, and there are all kinds of hanging chairs and a firepit outside. The PCT movie club is even having a "meeting" outside right now, Apollo 18, I think.
We're hiking for about 11 days after this. No resupply until Vermillion Valley Resort. That means 11 days worth of food. If you looked at one of our previous entries (June 5, I think), you know approximately how much we've been eating. Let me tell you, I've lifted my pack, and it weighs a ton. It's a good thing that we're ramping down our mileage for this section. No 34 mile days for us with packs like this!
Also, Thanks for all your guestbook entries! We love reading them and catching up on stuff that's happening out in the "real world." Keep leaving them!
