PCT Day 124, zero, Palm Springs

What I learned crashing in Palm Springs for a ‘zero’ on Halloween and Pride weekend:

  • desert weather is better than the upper great lakes
  • …in November, anyway
  • snag the motel next to the action
  • try on a costume/disguise/different personality/gender – sometimes it’s all you need
  • people love having their picture taken –> [see day 123]
  • no one really cares how you look if you’re wearing a smile
  • a hot tub soak just might prepare a blissful hiker for what’s next – the hardest steps she’ll walk in So Cal
  • people really are nicer out here
  • you gotta grab the moment while it’s there for the grabbing
  • dance more
