Day 45: Back to work
I slept in, made coffee, extra black! Then Yolanda took me to lunch and sight seeing to a small town named June. Amazing place! I could see myself retiring to this region.
Packed my stuff, did the dishes, had shoes heading toward Mammoth returned to sender, ordered another pair and had them sent to Kennedy Meadows.
I got dropped off outside Tehachapi and started hiking. I think my pack was as heavy as it has ever been! About a mile in I called REI. The handles to one of my poles fell off. I ordered a new pair and will return the old pair from KM for a refund.
I called mom to let her know I am going off the grid and then night hiked about 10 miles and passed out.
