Day 40: Zero At KM
I spent the day at Kennedy Meadows eating, sorting out my new gear, sorting food supplies and reading a book.
In the morning I took the shuttle (a pickup truck jammed with 15 hikers) to Grumpy Bears for breakfast. I was not able to finish the pancake.
New gear includes a wool baselayer shirt, a whippet pole, new boots, hiking crampons, wool mittens, and rain pants. The boots are similar to what I have been wearing but are waterproof. Still makes me nervous about going through another round of blisters.
I ate dinner here at the little grill, cheeseburgers of course. Much of the day I just hung out in the porch and this evening I finished the book I started yesterday.
The only thing I have left for the morning is to see how everything fits into my pack.
