Day: 83 (Zero #19)
After a good night’s sleep and a wholesome breakfast, it was off to REI to replace Paul’s air mat that went flat for no reason(his second one), a pair of gaiters for Paul, a food bag and a smaller pair of pants for me. Oh ya, and more bug spray. After REI we were treated to a local wine country tour, to include tasting at the Woodford Winery where Carl “works”. It’s a small winery that produces about 1500 cases of wine annually. Their wine is fantastic, so much so that when Paul, not really a wine drinker, says he could have drank the Rose and/or the Cab all day…it’s that good. On the way back we stopped for lunch at a biker type road stop for a burger, then back to Carl and Dori’s for a nap (originally we wanted to watch the World Cup soccer match, but made the mistake of stretching out on the comfy bed for a “minute”). Another fine dinner and conversation topped off our stay. Tomorrow we head back out. Dori will drop us at Carson Pass. We will go north and she will go south with her hiking club.
