Hey errbody! I’m in Tehachapi, I’ve been here for a while. Then I went down to LA to see an old friend. Now I’m back in Tehachapi and I still have all my town chores to do. I may be putting off this last stretch of desert a little bit. Just a tad. Starting things off with a 40 mile waterless stretch is just bleh.
So I can’t do my usual update. I’m low on mobile data and this motel wifi is the worst, I can’t even stay connected to it. So no pictures or anything for now. Boo. I imagine I can get something worked out once I hit Lone Pine.. maybe.. Needless to say it’ll be a while before I can do my usual update which makes me sad because I got some awesome pictures this stretch.
So I’m heading out tomorrow or the next day. Probably the next day so I can get all my things done and leave at a reasonable time.
Next time you hear from me, I’ll be out of the desert. I can’t believe I’m saying that. I wrote in a trail register that I’m amazed I made it this far, and I am. I knew I could do this but still.. I dunno. It is also a slightly sad moment, the desert represented the beginning of all this and it’s coming to an end. I loved almost every minute of it until things got really hot. But a change of scenery will be nice, and I’m excited to see what the Sierra is like.
