Day 8 & 9: Annual Day Zero Kickoff (ADZPCTKO)

April 22nd & 23rd

OxbowBurrito, Kiru, Nymeria and Ryan took The Breeze and I to the first kick-off at Lake Morena. They brought their RV. I felt like it was fairly priced for hikers, but thought that $30/guest adult was too much for cold burritos and coffee. (No disrespect intended.) It’s funny to look back at these photos now and recognize people whom I would not meet Yosemite.

One funny incident happened at 2 AM. I heard a hiker loudly call out, “Help!  Help!” …. And then someone called out from their tent, “What’s wrong?”
“I’m drunk and I don’t have a headlamp and I can’t find my lot.” I smiled and took comfort in knowing that was at least one person I was faring better than, hehe.
