Day 1 continued

Had a good dinner of pizza and salad at CR Gibbs in Redding. Decided that it was too hot to camp in Redding and decided to check into the Hilltop Lodge next door to where we ate dinner. Bad decision.  We paid like $70 to stay in a room with stained, fraying carpet, holes in the filthy wall, cracked mirrors, the works.  The worst is that the air conditioner sounded like an engine that had thrown a rod.  Even with ear plugs in there was a rhythmic kathunk kathunk kathunk all night.  We tried turining it off. Too hot.  The only solution we discovered was to make a change in temperature or intensity and the kathunk kathunk would quiet down enough that one or both of us could drift off to sleep for awhile until it was time to get up and make another air conditioner adjustment.  Thus we arrived at Rule Number One: only camp or stay at 3 star or better hotels. Later on in the trip we amend this rule.
