We completed a few miles through more old burn area and finally came into the wind farms, miles and miles of them.

Around 1000, while taking a break at Oak Creek with 8 miles to go, I Called Lou to pick us up around 1400 at Highway 58 and Cameron Road (MM566). I was hiking with Tortoise (Jess from Phoenix) and Dump Truck (Kyle from San Diego). I had Lou empty the rear of the Jeep and she met us all at 1400 and we drove back to Hikertown to return Tortoise and Dump Truck to their car. A few minutes after we were on th road it started to rain quite well. We would have been soaked if we had arrived much later. Lou and I returned to Tehachapi and, after a shower on my part, had dinner at a local deli and bakery. We all shared a single poor boy sandwich and took 1/4 home. I also had a nice broccoli and cheese soup and took away a great cheese cake. Nice to have completed these 122 miles with good weather and water. Now comes a tricky really dry section, or usually is. May be really muddy after these rains.
