      PCT 2023 - Day 10 - 100 miles!

      April 26, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

      The one with the 100 mile marker, a chilled market and a decision that I may regret.

      📍 Location: MM 94.4 to MM 101

      🥾 Elevation: 3479ft
      🥾 I actually walked: 8 miles
      💰 Money: $81 on resupply (big thanks to Rachel M and Mandy for their PCT donation pot).
      ⛑️ Health: I was so tired this morning. I’m not sleeping as it’s so hot in the night and I have a warm quilt and a super warm sleeping pad.

      ☀️ Weather: We left early and walked in the cool weather this morning. We reached our final destination at the hottest part of the day when it was well into the 30’s.

      🍲 Food: Giant cookie for breakfast, tortilla and cheese for lunch. I had stew for dinner followed by chocolate mudslide. I’m such a piggy!

      💤 Sleep: Crap! I’m so tired.

      🐍 Snake count: 4 no extra snakes today. Phew! But we do have frogs in camp! Omg these things are loud and I’m cowboy camping!

      👨 People update: Disco Daddy is now with us again which is great. I’ve added another 12 hikers to my year book and am thinking of putting the book on Amazon when I’m done.


      7am - We we’re meant to pack up camp and leave by six by it was more like 7am. It’s cool and the hiking is easy (or it would have been if I wasn’t so tired!)

      9.25 - It’s been quite cruisy and we are all on snake alert but we doubt snakes will appear as it’s still a bit chilly. Yey! We see the 100 miles stones in the ground and me, Di, Amber and Harry a take photos and do the Chandler dance.

      9.54 - Wow! The trail sudden changes as the desert vanishes and I’m now walking through lush green woods. This is so weird and I love it! All of us traipse into a large tent area which has a water trough with a flowing tap.

      10.10am - A guy called “old head “ is here with us by the roadside and makes a phone call. Within 10 mins we are being collected by a guy called Mike in a SUV. This time im not in the boot!! He takes us 3 miles up the road to a place called Montazuma Valley Market and RanchIT. This place is awesome and we spend all afternoon here. We get resupply, recharge electrics and you can have a shower at $20 (I didn’t do that this time around). I feel chilled and relaxed and enjoying the company of my fellow hikers. It’s expensive here. Nothing has prices on but for four days resupply of food it cost me $84 and then another $29 for tonight’s dinner. (But dinner was yummy!).

      4pm - We are now back in camp.
      We have such a good night as loads of us sat in a circle enjoying good chatter and singing. I’m sure you could hear the laughter for miles around.

      I’ve decided to give cowboy camping a go as it may be cooler and hopefully I get some sleep. Little did I know that tonight it would be something else that kept me awake!

      See you tomorrow l!

      Day 7

      April 17 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 15 °C

      Camped at 101.1. Hot today and long water carry’s

      We got up fairly early, camping in the canyon valley was surprisingly dry- no condensation!

      Lunch at a water cashe was delish, I had a bagel with avocado, cheese, cucumber, and salami.

      Later in the afternoon we found the extended fam siesta-ing under Spicy Batman’s tarp.

      Saw an angry rattlesnake, needed to down climb a bit off trail to avoid it.

      We ended up camping in a big meadow with a water spout and a troth. It was great to soak our feet
