Pacific Crest Trail Map

Oregon Day 13

Today was a nice big, fat zero day. I got up around 7:30, lounged around for a while, then headed out at 10 to do laundry. After that, there was only 1 important thing to do today. I needed a new pair of compression shorts. I had bought a pair just before starting and wasn't sure how long a pair would last. As you can see, I've hiked 896 miles this year. I'd say that the life span on a pair of shorts is 750 miles. To make a long story short, I got a local bus to Redmond and they dropped me off at the front door of a Walmart. I am happily in possession of a new pair of shorts. Woo-hoo.

The other thing I did today was to mail some food home. I've been hiking faster that I had planned so I was not finishing off my food. And the weight is not insignificant.

All in all a nice leisurely, zero day. As usual, starting to get antsy to be back on the trail. The high both yesterday and today in Sisters was 98 degrees. It's supposed to be cooler by the weekend, but I'm sure it will still be hot tomorrow. In the distance, one can see huge, snow covered Mt Jefferson (I think), the next destination. Looking forward to getting closer.
