Miles: Zero Day in Big Bear Lake
-Mother's Day... took pictures with my heart shaped hot pink dry erase board that had a Mother's Day message written on it. All the other hikers loved my idea, so I took pictures of everyone with the sign so they could send their picture to their moms. Moms are great and mine is the BEST! I LOVE YOU MOM!!!!
-Grocery store... bought tons of fresh food to pack out. Also got rear ended on the ride to the store, but no one was injured.
-Tin Man, Bow Tie, Julia "Button", and I got a ride out of town and back to the trail with the Big Bear Lake city planner, Janice Etter. What a sweet lady! I really appreciate her help and generosity. Thank you Janice! :)
-We didn't arrive to the trail head until later in the evening. Bow Tie and Julia "Button" hiked out, but Tin Man and I ran into hiker angels Rock Ocean and Camel... so we camped at the trail head, ate really well, and hung out with those guys.
-Offered a seasonal job at the hostel. I'm considering this as a work option in the future... but I'm still not too sure what I should do with my life. Maybe all I should do is focus on actually LIVING my life, and let that concept guide my decision making. I spoke to my mom who said I should do whatever makes me happy in life, and if seasonal work makes me happy and allows me to live the life I want, then that's what I can do.
