One of these things is not like the others.
After Kim picked us up in Echo Lake we went to lunch and then made our way to Reno, where we got a ridiculously cheap room at Harrah's. As I stood back and looked at Trav waiting in line to check in I realized just how far removed we are from American culture sometimes. Reno was quite a shock to our systems and we were happy to close our door, get some good sleep and scram the next morning. The next day we took care of all of our errands in Reno, as they have the only REI and Patagonia store in the area. At Patagonia I picked up my new, shiny hiking shirt... the one I've worn for almost 1,100 miles was worn completely sheer on the backside. The folks at the Patagonia store were awesome and super helpful to us. We are also so thankful for our friends at the Patagonia store in S.F. who tracked down the items we needed and shipped them to Reno. THANKS Patagonia buds!
Friday afternoon we made our way to Truckee to wait for the Conley Crew. While we waited we took care of our trail chores so that we could maximize our fun time over the weekend. Joanie, Larry, Wendy and Dan drove up from L.A and Susie and Brian came over from S.F. and the whole gang got a big cabin.
Saturday afternoon Kim, Joanie and Larry headed to a friend's wedding and the rest of us went to the beach at Donner Lake. We enjoyed a little fun in the sun before going back to the cabin to grill up some stellar dinner.
Whew! That's a lot of blog updating and now we're up to date (as of Sunday, July 7th).
As always, our PCT Info Page.
