    ... maybe no summiting for Craig and the others? What a bummer that would have been to come all that way, and miss that high point.

    There was a hanging scale at the base of the trail and we all weighed in. My pack, which I thought started at 35 pounds, weighed in at 37... I guess I was better off not knowing that I probably started at 40lbs. Coming home with more than half my total food didn't help!

    We loaded into the cars to head ...

    ... so we started down. It's a stark, goat trail with a unnerving drop on on the "down" side of Forester. Some were battling with a known fear of heights. I decided not to see if heights were an issue for me and to look at the next step instead of the drop off and happily trotted down the mountain...almost a different person than the one who labored up.

    ... turning 30. So here he is almost complete, having started September 6th encountering crazy fires in Yosemite, carrying a very big pack, smelling like a backpacker, and looking about as happy and satisfied as any person could possibly be.

    ... It was a long u turn! Anyway we got motoring on the highway soon enough and settled into the long, long, roads. About an hour or so later it suddenly dawned on me we were heading west and yet I knew really we should be going north west really. I had an inkling what might be happening. I checked with my trusty co pilot - the lovely Mrs O. She has been chief Sat Nav operator on the trip. I said I think Homer is taking us west then north ...
