Pacific Crest Trail Map

Day 15 Zero Day Idyllwild

So today was a day of rest and recovery. Zero days are busy days. First I had to get my laundry done. As you will recall the last time I did it was in a bucket at Warner Springs. Today it got done in a regular washer and dryer. Next is walking to resupply at the post office. They had my box, yay! Youll remember they didnt at Warner Springs. Next was pick up items like a new washer for my Sawyer Squeeze. The one that comes with it sucks. I also had to pick up another wall charger as the one I got at Warner stopped working. Maybe I crushed it in the pack? At least its not working now and has to be replaced. My Anker 10,000 brick battery takes 7 hours to recharge. I get 8+ phone charges from it, but it is a beast to recharge.

Then to the climbing outfitter for a new pair of shorts, it seems Ive gone down in size and my other walking shorts are trashed. I also picked up a new pair of sungloves. Oh and body chafe. Vaseline is ok but isnt doing the trick. And butt chafe is a thru hiking thing.

Also needed to go to grocery store and buff up my food supply. The plan at this point is to get to Big Bear Lake before next resupply and that is about 6-7 days away. So well be carrying a big food burden. And we stop by the library to pick up the latest water report.

And finally I have spent the day between the above updating the journal to keep you all appraised as to the trip. Im grateful for your interest. Best wishes to you all. Trail Angel Grumpy is going to pick me up in the morning at 7:30 and give me a ride to the trail head. Happy Trails.
