Getting down to Hiker Town

Hiker Town IS funky town. It is a piece of property on the edge of the Mojave owned by Los Angelenes Richard and Roberta. And it is so funky. They have a traditional home the use on occasional visits and then they have a whole old west studio set with bedrooms you can use for a small donation. Chickens and dogs run loose and there is a vintage Rolls Royce and other random vehicles (like sheriff jeep and beach buggies) in the yard. Richard happened to be at the property and invited us into his home for some delicious desert made by his wife Roberta. They fell into trail angeling by accident when they bought the property and realized the previous owner had let hikers use it as a water stop before entering the Mojave. So they gamely continued the tradition and even improved it by building the studio set bedrooms! Thank you!

RealSelf

I'm not trying to find my "real self", just planning to lose some baggage on the trail. The Pacific Crest Trail, about 2,500 miles long, runs from Mexico to Canada along the West coast of the US. I will hike it until I don't feel like hiking anymore.
