Apprehension and excitement are both prevalent this evening. We picked up my brother-in-law Jeff this afternoon and we arrived at Lake Morena around 3 p.m. Shortly thereafter, Sauerkraut and Alina arrived from the border and we invited them to dinner. Phil also made it just before food and we had a taco feast. It was great talking to the first hikers I have met. Jeff and I head out in the a.m. Jeff is joining me for 3 days and we will hike together until Pioneer Mail. I do not know Jeff very well and look forward to hiking with him. That said we have no idea if we are compatible and that is a concern. Regardless, for this part of my hike I am willing to be really flexible as I have a lot of schedule options at this early junction. Wow, I really start tomorrow. The weather is quite cool and hiking will require much less water than I anticipated. I will start with 3 liters and thus save 4 pounds in H20 weight. Sounds good—we are off.
