This morning, I accompanied Rob, my friend and hiking partner for this week, as he returned his rental car in downtown South Lake Tahoe, and then bought myself some breakfast while Rob got a taxi to the PCT trailhead outside of town.  Ideally, I would have been here a day earlier and ready to resume hiking today, but I wasn’t so we decided that Rob would start his hike with two easy days and I will catch him up tomorrow night.

The rest of my day was spent buying some replacement socks, trying to repair my rainpants with special waterproof duck tape, buying supplies for the next leg and planning my remaining days, including making accommodation bookings (mostly cancellable).  If all goes according to plan, I will finish in Chester on Sunday, October 10, but if that schedule proves too aggressive, it can slip a couple of days.  I couldn’t get a new sleeping bag inner, so have resigned myself to more cold nights, but there is an outdoor sports store in Truckee, which we will reach on Friday, so maybe I will have some luck there.
