Start: tentsite just before the road into Tehachapi
Miles covered: 15, all miles into and around Tehachapi
PCT mile marker: 558/2652
Highlight: Kohnen’s, a German bakery in the center of Tehachapi. I think I ate there three times. (Honorable mention: Draft beer selection at TK’s Pizza.)
Biggest challenge: Waiting for packages that should have arrived days earlier. REI really let me down this time. From a $200 order with $30 expedited shipping, only $5 of the items even left REI before the estimated delivery date. I waited on a sidewalk for five hours for one that was two days late and cancelled the rest.
