Just a few miles into town today. We didn’t see the need to get up early, so no alarm again and we were rolling around 7am.
As we got close to Hwy 50, we were pleasantly surprised to see Coppertone (Trail angel) at the parking lot near the Hwy. Lid, Gopher and some others were there enjoying some treats when we walked up. After a few minutes, Coppertone was making root beer floats! 8am is not too early for ice cream. It is pretty amazing how many times we have seen Coppertone on the trail. We get pretty excited when we see his van as we come to a trail head.
We got into town and made out way to Denny’s for breakfast, then the outfitter, McDonald’s and finally to the rental house. Several of us went in together for the house and it is quite comfy. Generally, this seems like a cost effective way to do lodging. Especially since we eat at the house more and the restaurants less when we have a kitchen.
