PCT Day 24 Day 24 Hiker Heaven AKA The Saufleys'

Day 24, June 13th 
20 miles
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.

Paint on ahead of me

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.

I was dazzled by the colorful apples
