Day 8 – The Warner Springs Vortex

​After the crappy night I woke up amazingly refreshed.   Had my bucket shower and I feel sparkling clean.   Close got washed and dried instantly in the sun.   The school across the street is slinging some kind of soft tostada thing, so that went down the hatch.

It is hiker mania at Warner.   Must have been 30 tents pitched last night in the wind tunnel.  Got a mid-morning pic below. 
Folks in the area are really supportive of the thru-hikers.   Folks at the community center next to the camp ground are constantly driving folks to/from the post office and general store.   A local turned up with a box of oranges early.  I saw 2 groups of hikers step out to the highway and get a ride within 5 minutes of sticking their thumbs out.  
Chatting with a lot of interesting folks.   Really not that hard to join a conversation.   Just walk up to a cluster and sit down.  I’m lounging around today updating my site and trying to get pics up.   Lots of talk about blisters, plantar facitus (sp?), and sprains.   Don’t like to stick around for those conversations 🙁  

It is easy to get stuck here. 
Plan to head out sometime after 2.   Hopefully the dot watchers will be satisfied.
