Day 100 – From Ash campground to Dunsmuir, mile 1499

July 29.

Started 6.45am after breakfast. Quite fast this morning… No problem to complete 10 miles by 10am.

Kept thinking about the plan for today… Push for 30+ miles and go to town already tonight or take it easier and hitch into town only tomorrow morning.

I had done 16.5 miles by 12.45pm, lunch break at a tentsite at mile 1485.

Only 13.7 miles to the highway 5 leading into Dunsmuir – so I will attempt to go to town today.

Twilight due to the smoke the whole day – not easy on the soul.

Short before the highway, I hit the 1500 miles marker. On day 100. 😁

Made it to the highway 5 around 7pm. Hitchhiking was surprisingly easy – considering I was hitchhiking the first time directly on a highway with the cars speeding by. An older couple was also trying to get a ride to Dunsmuir/Mt Shasta. After maybe 20 minutes, a car stopped with place for all three of us.

I got into Dunsmuir 7.45pm. I confirmed my AirBnB reservation at Hotel California in the center of the little town. Dinner in the Pizza Factory just next door.

Chillie and parmesan

Tired. Feet and legs are sore. Also the knees were complaining the last miles.
