Miles 17.1 + 1.6 side trail
End mile 37.1
I wake early, Bob and his family make me an awesome breakfast and I say goodbye to my friend Free Refills who is a Germany who had previously tried the PCT and was cut short 200 miles. He will catch up later.
I walk through the cool morning, then oddly a European news camera crew stops and films me walking down the trail on a perfect grassy meadow they had the camera down low on the trail. I need to find out about it.
I have a good day walking, I stop at Cibets flat and get water and talk with an old man. I pass a sign about unexploded ordinance.
Finally I find a good camp spot, other people left because of a bees nest in a dead tree, I liked it and it had good access to water.
