Our last night together in California before Brad's departure on the Pacific Crest Trail. We camped at a County Camp Ground in Potrero, near Campo, the night of May 4. New gear had been purchased and food shopping was completed, but Brad needed some time to test, organize, repackage, and repack. He was able to reduce his base pack weight, but with the large quantities of water needed for the desert, he departed the next day with a very heavy pack.
