Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer, climb the mountains and get their good tidings, nature’s peace will flow into you, as sunshine flows into trees, the wind will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.
2 Zero Days
My pack is full with good food, CLEAN clothes, and more importantly I am clean and scrubbed! Two resupply boxes have been sent. I am ready to go as Steve Martin would say. My heart rate is up just thinking about getting back into the Sierras.
I have a new strategy with my daily clothes selection, since I have NOT been successful at remaining even close to decently free of giant sweat and dirt stains. The strategy is simple… wear only beige, brown, and black (you know the natural colors)! This clearly IS wishful thinking. Probably, this little philosophy is more appropriate for today.

I am looking forward later today to a steak salad ( gotta get the salads in) at Tioga Toomies at the Tioga Pass Mobil Station and seeing new country. Please stay tuned while I begin this new leg of my journey. Oh by the way, I would be glad to answer questions anyone may be wondering about, hiking of course.
