I got up early and found that it had been raining lightly over night. I had about 10 miles of walking to get to the trail head at Olallie Lake Resort. A truck with a dumpster box drove by headed for the resort, but he wouldn't give me a ride.
About a mile befort the resort, a fisherman stopped and gave me a ride to the resort. It's a little early, but the resort and the store were able to open due to the lack of snow in the area. The store had some great hiker items. The one thing that I was surprised that they had was replacement insoles for my shoes. There were not exactly the right size, but they worked. I'm starting to get a blister on the bottom of my left foot from the road walking with my heavy pack.
