Day 55 and 56, Zero miles
Well. I did walk the mile down to the beach on the lake, and back, in the morning. That counts as miles. Right?
Got a ride into the town of Burney to do errands. Town days are a necessary evil. I look forward to showering, laundry, and an egg, bacon, and cheese sandwich. Then I can’t wait to get back on the trail.
Tonight we had a family feast. Happy made a big fire. He is a professional. The kids made dinner. Strawberries, raspberries, burgers, fire roasted garlic and onion, garlic bread and double chocolate cookies. All I had to do was show up. Instagator and Expeditor, a retired couple who are hiking and driving the pct, brought over wine and joined us. They have a fabulous new VW Westfalia camper that we are drooling over.
The last few days were a heat wave. 36 degrees Celsius.
Tomorrow is a new day. There is talk over the fire, of road walking/driving/skipping the next snowy section. It’s not for another 100 miles, so we’ll see. I love the snow. I’ll be hiking it.

Two day rest, good idea. Did you swim?
No. It’s a bit windy yet. I’ll be swimming in lakes soon I hope. I’ve done a few quick dips in rivers.
Hi Sally, are you enjoying your dinner. (“Bon appetite”) have you tried some fishing in the lake? Your doing great. Super photos….
No time to fish. I have to hike 8-14 hours a day. Looks good for fishing though.
