Day 65: Zero In Tuolumne Meadows

Memories from June 24

The parental units came to visit today. They brought food to spice up my resupply box (dried kiwi!) and we went out to lunch in Lake June. We went to the Woah Nellie Deli for dessert and tried to use Dad’s 4G to upload blog posts but only two made it through. I have some recommendations for the improvement of the WordPress app.

I’d ordered a lighter backpack (more on this in the future) to the Tuolumne Meadows hoping to ditch most if my Sierra gear there. That box was still in Yosemite Valley but they let me bounce it to South Lake Tahoe. There’re some pretty dire reports about Sonora Pass from about 5 days ago so I decided to keep the microspikes and ice axe.

I’d also ordered a cheapo pair of bone conduction headphones so I can try listening to audiobooks while still being able to hear the surroundings. They were not to be found in either the Tuolumne Meadows or Yosemite Valley post office. I distinctly remember Amazon using the word guaranteed when describing the delivery date. I don’t have internet so I’ve given my Amazon password to dad so he  can text me the tracking number and I can follow up tomorrow. Sigh. The most complexity for the least important of my five boxes.
