Not happening...

I tried, it just wasnt gonna happen... Wylie and I were up early to tackle tillamook head...with the cart, it was a torture trail...rocky, rooty, narrow, and steep at times...part of it washed out... The trail turned the cart over many times, I drug it, pulled it, cussed it, and lucky I didnt throw it over the cliff...At the top was the backpackers camp, with several hikers in it..Met Woody, another PCT refugee, and a few other hikers...we enjoyed the rest at the picnic tables, then headed down the trail..The descent trail was everything the ascent trail wasnt! Wide, graveled, smooth, totally urban... Id still had it..I kne wI would hitch to Cannon Beach and reacess...Got a fast hitch with a senior surfer dude, lucky cause the road out was windy and narrow... The town was PACKED with people! It was hard to find anywhere to even get a bite to eat...finally settled on a small grocery store, getting a sandwich made...I had free wifi, so checked bus schedules...one was headed to Seaside in two hours... decided to see if they would let us on... and they did! Bus took us to within 1/2 mile of where I had stored my rig...so just like that, it was over... Ill regroup and head to the PCT!!
