Too damn hot (weatherman says 96 in Mountain View, and it was hotter in the foothills!). I went through over half a gallon of water in the first hour, and decided to turn back after running out of water just before the water stop. Too dangerous to go on–dehydration is nothing to sneeze at, especially on such a hot day.
Now I’m heading off to an AIDS Lifecycle reunion party, that promises to be great fun–several of the people I really want to talk to (for the book) are going to be there.
More writing later, when it’s not so damn hot.
