Managed to get out of work early Friday, and decided to head up to try to catch Team Buford in front of the fire. I knew it would be a night hike, and despite not having hiked 109S before, felt pretty good about route finding and terrain under a headlamp.

Met two other guys at the trailhead and promptly passed them. Found out later they overnighted near the saddle. I put in some effort since I didn't want to hike in the dark too much, and managed to arrive in camp by 7, after just 2:25 on the trail.

The pecan pie was gone, but the cookies were still serving. The earlier arrivals had put in the kind of firewood gathering efforts that would make nonot cry in disappointment. Nonetheless we managed to keep a reasonable flame going until it was time for bed.

Everybody seemed to do their own thing Saturday, and I had an off-trail goal in mind but gave up after the Manzanita became too much for me to want to fight. But it was 5 miles and a couple of good hours away from camp.

Tibber and Alex showed up in the afternoon, and we settled in for another entertaining evening by the fire.

Sunday morning some left very early and others took their time. Thundergod and I headed out at around 9:30 and caught up to the masked man with the broken toe at the alligator juniper. We kept up a good pace and made it back to the cars in 2:35. (The added 10 min was spent taking photos that the nighttime arrival didn't allow!).

Along the way we ran into Cameron and a few of his buddies (but no Winston!) who were doing a dayhike to drop some provisions for next weekend's TITS. Back at the TH we waited as Chuck arrived in great shape for hiking on a broken toe, followed by Boots and Squirrel. After an hour we finally decided to head back to civilization and the realities of life.

A great weekend all around. Good people as always! Thanks Hippy for putting it all together :)
