Day 6, NEW SHOES!

Broke camp this am & walked to the bridge. A trail angel named Ghost was there & offered to give us a ride into Julian. I asked if there were any outfitters there, he said no but there's an outfitter in Warner Springs, then offered to take us there so I could get new shoes, wait for us and drive us to Julian. So off we went! It was a mobile outfitter in an airstream trailer. I got new Altra's, size 10 mens, and 2 pair of toe socks! Left my old shoes in the hiker box. Ghost then drove us to Julian, gave us a quick tour of town & dropped us at Carmen's restaurant which is a hangout for hikers. The restaurant was closed today except for hiker trash. Carmen made everyone breakfast burritos, which were awsome. Soda was free, first beer was free. We did laundry too. The kindness and generosity of trail angels is amazing! We walked to the corner grocery store, then went to Mom's for free PCT hiker pie & ice cream, yum! Went back to Carmen's so I could soak my feet & realized I did not have my wallet. After some degree of panic, we found it in Kevin's backpack. Not sure how it got there. Thanks Jessica for assisting in the search from Seattle!! We had dinner at an Italian restaurant, then cowboy camped on Carmen's deck.
