Yesterday July 12th: made it to Donner Pass with one of my best friends Dawn at 830pm. Found a ride to truckee with some day hikers only to find that every single hotel in a 25 mile radius was booked!! So we just took a taxi to a Mexican food place to eat, and a pct hiker named night crawler just happened to be there on a day zero with her family and after talking to her for a few minutes she invited us over to the cabin they were staying at for the night! So we gladly accepted since they could drive us back to the trailhead before 930 am this morning. We took showers and did laundry! Talk about unexpected trail magic!! Woohoo! So now I’m back on my own and Dawn goes back home. She did amazingly well and we had a blast together! Laughing the entire time 🙂 she hiked over 60 miles and even though she got blisters and sore knees she kept up with a big smile the whole time! So awesome to have the people I love along on my adventure. Next stop for me is Sierra city in 50 miles. Love to all!!!
