McDonalds (Day 27)


We made it to Cajon Pass – 76 miles north of Big Bear. Splints are on the mend with the help of an ankle brace. We just gorged ourselves on McDonalds – the light at the end of our tunnel – fries, burgers, nuggets, soda, shakes, salad…now entering food coma…more details of the last few days coming soon…

McDonalds is an official PCT destination

  1. Impressive recovery, Jean. Is this part of “significant rest”? Maybe the McDonald’s feed is part of that protocol . Thanks for the update!

    1. While a week off my feet doesn’t seem significant, it definitely was as far as PCT time goes! We hiked in 9 miles the first day (with an exit strategy back to Big Bear at our campsite that first night) – where I noticed that my right ankle (and not my left) buckles in when I bend my leg. The solution? An ankle brace, ankle taping, and a new hiking style. Jared hiked/hitched into town to get me an ankle brace and athletic tape, which was amazing! And the ankle support seriously helped which is also exciting! I put 70-80 miles on my shins and they are feeling good – REALLY good – to my surprise even. The McDonalds was icing on the cake 🙂
