Each morning, everyone helps pack away the supplies and makes sure the two trailers are loaded and ready to go before anyone leaves camp.
Stage 2 is the second of the two days that had to be re-routed because of the fire. We drove to the start in North Fork and everyone started from there.
The route basically follows about two-thirds of the Grizzly Century, a big counter-clockwise loop, ending at our camp site for the night at Bass Lake.
The two vehicles leapfrogged to provide the rest stops. When I arrived at the second rest stop at about
mile 34 it became clear to me that, with 3000 feet more of climbing, the third rest stop would be waiting
a long time for me to arrive. This was the van pulling the box railer with all the dinner supplies and I
didn't want to hold them up. So I just sagged in from there. As it was, we still didn't start dinner
until after 7 pm and the cook crew was still cleaning up after dark.
