It’s beginning to look a lot like the Sierra!

June 3, 2010

Well the team pushes on.  We are now in Kennedy Meadows taking a day before we push onwards into the snow.  It has been hot in this last part so it is hard to think that soon we will be in snow.  I’m excited though.  We made it through this last section, 136 miles, in 6 days.  We pulled some long days.  I am glad we are taking a break here in KM before the rest.  The hiking has been pretty good, fairly uneventful.  We met a really nice gentleman in Tehachapi who gave us rides to and from the trail who worked at Edwards Airforce base, NASA.  He talked about meeting Neil Armstrong and hanging out with him. 

The Tehachapi windfarms were very windy, which was to be expected.

We decided one day after we had done 22 miles by 2:30pm to hitch into Lake Isabella.  An RV that was towing a chariot pulled over and took us five hikers into Kernville.  They were coming back from Mule Days.  We ate a fabulous dinner at B&B BBQ in Kernville, which had extremely nice owners.  We got 2 hitches out of Kernville.  One was a firefighter, who was quiet but nice.  The next was a girl in a Saturn, who fit us 5 hikers and 5 packs in somehow.  It was kind of frightening.  There were 4 of us in the back and 2 packs as well.  It was a squishy hitch, but pretty fun.  Now we are relaxing, but there are things to be done!  We are going to break the Sierra up a bit and attempt Whitney.  We shall see how it all goes.  A bunch of people have already set out so it should be decent.
