PCT mile 454
I was eager to get to the Saufleys' today. I knew I had 20 miles to go, but that meant shower, laundry, and resupply box. I hadn't showered or washed my clothes in 9 days, I and everything I owned was filthy. The girls from work had sponsored my resupply box, so I had unknown goodies awaiting me too!
Paint Your Wagon, Paint for short, (another thru-hiker I came across 2 days ago) and I had camped at the same spot last night so we headed out together this morning.
Things were slow moving for me again this morning. That's when I realized...there's a KOA with a store in 8 miles...that means I can get my caffeine fix. So I hightailed it in the last 5 miles. And caffeine I got! 3 cups of coffee, a coffee flavored ice cream bar, a iced Starbucks drink and some snacks to fill the belly and I was raring to go again!
Last 10 miles were a breeze. I first stopped at the grocery store in Agua Dulce, before heading to Hiker Heaven. I picked up some coconut water, blueberry lemonade, kombucha and 2 apples and off to Hiker Heaven.
