Worrying is like a rocking chair, you are doing something but getting nowhere.

2nd creek (4 miles south of highway 50) to Susie Lake in Desolation Wilderness
I hiked into Echo Lake Resort today WORRYING: would my resupply box be at the post office, what if the post office isn’t open, where can I stay if it isn’t there, I am out of food do they have a snack bar, I need to charge this I Phone how will I do that, and most of all I kept thinking maybe you should just go home Rockin’???????????????? DOUBTS…DOUBTS…DOUBTS!
Well let me tell you that was a big, fat waste of time and energy. My box was there, I bought the best turkey sandwich ever (it looked more like a salad), a Dr. Pepper, 2 oranges, 2 plums, and a peach. Then I saw a gentleman outside the resort sporting a cool, new i Phone. We got to talking and guess what, he generously offered to charge my phone at the cabin he was vacationing at! I rode in a small motor boat across Echo Lake with Marty and Joy to the cabin. I enjoyed a delightful afternoon at an adorable rustic cabin, had a HOT shower, drank tea with cookies and fresh fruit, and shared my journey with these great people. All the while my phone was charging. I also had fun trading iPhone tips and apps with Marty. Thank you Marty and Joy. It was great fun and now I am off carrying 7 days of food through very scenic and popular Desolation Wilderness clean and with a smile on my face.
