Well I made it dunsmuir! I originally wanted to get to the town of mt Shasta but I got offered a ride here instead so I took it in an effort to save some time (hitching is a lot of work !) I got the ride with another hiker; a new one I had never met named lady killer, with his daughter fortune cookie who is hiking with him for a week. So the ride brought us to cave springs inn where we split the cost of a room 🙂 score! Shower and laundry and wifi!! I just need to get 2 days of food to make it to Etna. I hurt my ankle the other day after my first 30 mile day and thankfully it has healed and I have no more pain. It was hurting pretty bad for about 10 miles 😦 but I taped it and took IB and it got better! Plus the terrain has been nice and FLAT! That helps an injury a lot. So I will be entering castle crags tomorow 🙂 I have a target date of aug 11 for hitting Ashland Oregon! Let’s see if I make it lol.
