I made it to my first campground, 411 miles away. I left Santa Cruz around 8:30 and just pulled into the campground at 3:45. Took my time and ate a sandwich in Tehachepi but mostly enjoyed the speed of the Tarmac. When I dropped into Mojave I started to feel the temperature climb fast. It was 62 when I left Santa Cruz and it's 92 as I sit here waiting for the sun to go down. John should be pulling in anytime now and we will start the official trail planning.
