Today we were heading in to Big Bear Lake as usual we set our alarms to 0430 and started hiking at 0515.
The night had been quite cold and I should probably had set my bivy up. The cold was nothing worrying but enough to be annoying. The night had been really cold before going to bed so I should have expected the cold night.
Getting started in the morning was chilly as well but not too bad once we got started. We had read that there was a shuttle to Big Bear Hostel at 0800 and wanted to get that shuttle. Sadly the shuttle no longer ran and we had to get a hitch.
We quickly got a hitch on a pickup truck that could fit all 5 of us. The driver took us all the way to the hostel and did not accept any cash for gas. Such amazing generosity.
We were in town early around 0900 and got a Hiker special breakfast at Teddy’s. The breakfast was the first time I tasted biscuits and gravy and I was not impressed. Besides that the breakfast was really good.
After starting laundry we went to get resupply and add compensation for least stretch I got way too much food this time, better than not having enough I guess.
After collecting our clothes and sorting our resupply we went for a combined lunch and dinner at a Mexican place. I got a Burrito California which was amazing.
We made a quick visit to the sports store where I replaced my headphones.
After this we relaxed the rest of the evening.
