Hikers camp at Warner Springs

2018 PCT Section Hike - Day 6

Got up early and headed to Warner Springs.

Easy, downhill trail.

Eagle Rock was cool.

My right pinky toe and left shin started hurting.

The shin was bad by the time I got to Warner Springs.

Bob and Elizabeth were at Warner Springs when I arrived.

There are a ton of hikers here.

Took and "bucket shower", did laundry, and set up camp.

A South Korean named Hun drew our portraits.

By 3pm I could hardly walk.

Iced the shin and elevated the leg; also took Vitamin I.

Tri-Tip dinner at the school was good.

Hope I can hike tomorrow.

Post-Hike Comments:

The highlight of the day was limping into Warner Springs about 11am to find that Bob and Elizabeth had made their way there! There were a ton of hikers there, from all over the world. South Korea, England, Australia, and Switzerland to name a few. I took my first ever bucket shower (you fill a bucket with warm water and dump it over you), which felt great, and then I did my laundry. We set up camp in the yard along with everyone else. There were some really aggressive ground squirrels so food had to be secured. The squirrels chewed a hole in at least one hikers tent to get at some food left inside. My left shin was in a great deal of pain and I was worried that I would not be able to hike the next day. Fortunately, there was a gear vendor (2footadventures.com) there with a sweet gearshop set-up in an old Airstream Trailer. I was able to purchase a pair of compression socks, which I was hoping would help with the shin splint. I went to bed that night praying that I'd be able to hike the next day.
