PCT MM1157 To MM1144 Don Ready To Go  0915160958
Thursday: (09/15) Up early, threw the pack in the car and headed off toward Truckee. Hwy 89, the road on the West side of the lake, was closed for construction so we took Hwy 50 to Hwy 28 to Hwy 267 and arrived in Truckee, the long way. We had breakfast at the Wagon Wheel cafe downtown.

PCT MM1157 To MM1144 Campsite South Of Tinkers Knob 0915161901
I stopped at MM1144 for the night South of Tinkers Knob, 12 miles today. A couple was already camped there. They also started this morning at Hwy 80. Their first outing. The pointed me to my nice campsite which they found after they had setup their camp. The water source where the stream crossed the trail just before camp was interesting because of the millions of little black caterpillars by the stream.
