Then, my dear friends Dave and Nicole Smith came from Yakima, WA to meet me at White Pass. They brought goodies for me and all my stinky hiker buddies. It was so good to see them and their kids are absolutely beautiful.
THEN we met Scallywag's grandmother, aunt and uncle, plus their kids at Chinook Pass. They put out a MASSIVE spread of food and forced us to take tons of food with us. The food was great but our packs were so heavy!
THEN! THEN we met my friends Dragonfly and Beeker, who I know from the AT, at Snoqualmie Pass. They bought me a fantastic lunch and brought a bag of goodies for all the hiker trash to share. Plus Astro's mom was there with food. We all ate, then rested, then hiked!
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see us!
