At mile 266 I hitched into Big Bear City and booked a room at the local hostel. The town was full of hiker trash, gargantuan breakfasts, and a long overdue trip to the cinema (GODZILLA!). It's overwhelming how many great people I've met along the trail. New faces come out of the woodwork each time I hobble into town. Looking forward to catching up to the April 25 kickoff bubble!
