“SOCHI – get in!” That’s all I heard. I didn’t even see ’em right away. When the SUV pulled up in front of me, I must’ve looked like a deer in headlights. Shredder jumped out and hustled me in. Before I knew it, my gear was in the back and we were off. But to where? I was so confused. Next thing I knew, we were at a condo and apparently spending the night. Yvonne and Don made us dinner, hooked us up at the hot tub, gave us ice cream, and opened their home to us. TRAIL ANGELS! I had been hoping to reach the trailhead, but how do you say no to this kind of hospitality? You don’t. Besides, the clouds were getting dark. “OK, twist my arm. Guess I’ll sleep in a bed tonight.” Another unplanned zero, but what’s the rush? Thank you both so much for your incredible hospitality! Hanging out with you guys was such a treat.
