Big Bear Hostel
First, thank you to everyone for your guestbook comments. They are so wonderful. It's always a fun treat to get cell service and find messages in our guestbook! Thank You!!
Also, added a few things to past journals. I always put stars on new stuff.
Our first real rest day. A whole day just to relax and lay around.
Still awoke early and Reddy fixed breakfast burritos. Then it was on to the 24oz smoothies thanks to Silver Fox's find during her early morning walk for coffee.
Reddy and Silver Fox liked our room so much that they've moved in for the night. Also had hiking friend Joel (Disco) join us so now there is a total of 5 in the room. It's a good thing because the hostel is totally full again. With us having more people in our big room, more hikers can fit into the hostel.
Gino had a big fat lunch while Lion Heart did some work on the resupply situation. Got to talk to my parents and make some changes to future resupply boxes. No more gorp for Gino and no more batteries for the camera in each resupply box. They last way longer than we expected. Also having my swimming suit sent for our planned zero days with Pat and Mary. Looking forward to the pool and hot tub!
Sent a mini resupply ahead to Kennedy Meadows with some extra food that we had. Also sent a few small things home.
Dinner was steak, asparagus, and pizza. And of course beer. Currently laying in bed with the feet up. Plan to leave tomorrow but wishing for another day. Totally love it here!
