4/28/18. Got up early the next morning,leaving my friends behind and headed to to Tehachapi to meet Dare. The winds were just a strong but it was a beautiful morning. I hiked wind farm most of the morning and then began to climb up the mountain. The winds then died down. I climbed up 3000 feet and 23.5 miles to meet Dare. On the way I passed through another wind farm with strong winds that nearly knocked me over. If I needed
poles to keep me from blowing over.
I met Dare near to Tehachapi and plan on taking a couple days off the trail. It was good to see Dare and good to have a little rest.
