Today is my 100th day on the trail. For the most part, it went well, and after yesterday’s detour to Truckee and resulting short day, Quoi and I returned to our newly-quickened pace, going a bit over 23 miles to a campsite more than halfway to the next town, Sierra City.

I didn’t sleep too well last night, partially on account of the guy above me snoring, and partially because I just couldn’t get to sleep. Quoi also didn’t sleep well last night, especially because of the guy snoring, but also because she got back late from the concert.
