Day 14 - Wednesday, June 6

I got up this morning and got ready to hit the trail. Ed, the owner of Nature's Inn who was giving me a ride, said there was 35-50 mph winds on the mountain I was going to cross. The winds had been fairly bad yesterday when I came down and I was thinking about Lon having to camp in high winds. Ed convinced me that heading out in these winds would be a bad idea. I hate losing another day but don't want to do anything stupid either.
He drove me into town to get some things. Turns out his wife is in alcohol recovery so I ended up telling him my experiences and gave him advice about how to be supportive of her. They just bought the hotel 9 months ago and are still trying to get settled in. He has had 400 PCT hikers through this season. I got a room at Nature's Inn for the night and spent some time on e-mail and My Space.

Hey Girlie!
Sounds like you're making some good decisions. Glad to hear it. Julia and I went from Stanford to Sunol and back this morning. We both touched your favorite tree and sent positive energy your way.
Hugs being sent your way too. :)

Hi Catra,
It's good to know that you are doing good. Keep having fun, and be safe.

Hi Catra. Keep running smart and I am sure you will reach your goal. Trust your instincts. You are a pro and no when to go and when not to go.

You are inspriational.

you're doing great catra. eat, drink, eat, drink, eat, drink as much as possible. 8 pounds lost in 14 days could certainly turn into a bad situation (sorry, don't mean to be sounding negative, just trying to be helpful). you've got the experience with this stuff though so hopefully you're able to stop that trend soon here. good luck with everything.
