Zero Day in Big Bear Lake!
We started the day with a delicious Israeli breakfast made by Tortilla- Matt and I didn’t mean to eat it, since we had breakfast plans for 0930, but we took a bite..and then nearly 2 servings each!!
We struggled to find an Uber or Lyft in this beautiful mountain town, so by the time we got one, Matt and I were showing up to breakfast nearly 1 hr late!! We still ended up having a nice time catching up with Adam and Captain and Charisse and Rooster (no longer 45!) Matt and I each ate our egg breakfast + toast + sides + a shared pancake + a shared slice of pie!
Between town-day chores, Matt and I chatted with fellow hikers, met with friends for drinks, then rushed to the Himalayan Restaurant for take-out before they closed- we really enjoyed our Indian food in bed! (Problem with Matt losing 10lbs and trying to gain it back? I can keep up with his eating, and I don’t need to gain 10lbs!!)
Our group grew!!
Happiness is: the camaraderie of thru hikers!!
