THE STORY:

UPDATE!!!!

Micheline, Zephyr, Garrett and Kim have all returned from their 5-day hiking journey. Micheline completed 43 miles, conquering 4 peaks (Mt. Watson, Mt. Houghton, Relay Mountain and Mt. Rose), Zephyr and Garrett completed 39 miles and bagged 3 peaks (Mt. Houghton, Relay Mountain and Mt. Rose) and Kim finished 38 miles and 2 peaks (Relay Mountain and Mt. Rose). The adventure was physically challenging but exciting and rewarding. All hikers had a chance to camp outside, see Lake Tahoe from some of the highest peaks (10,700 ft.), and learn about resourcefulness and health during their hike. Marlene, AKA the Elusive Rutabaga, is still out in the woods being elusive. She can be tracked by clicking on the link below. We started in Tahoe City and that is Marlene's final destination. She is currently headed north-west toward the west side of Lake Tahoe. It is estimated that by the time Marlene returns, she will have completed 177+ miles.

Below you can read more about the hike from previous postings:

Beginning Monday, July 21, 2014, avid hiker Marlene Padilla (AKA “The Elusive Rutabaga”), Micheline White (Executive Director of Coastal Seniors), Kim Barber, Zephyr Gunheim (owner of Mane Street Salon in Anchor Bay) and her 16-year-old son Garret (owner of Garret’s Hot Dogs) will embark on a hiking journey through the wilderness, bringing only what they can carry on their backs, along the Lake Tahoe Rim Trail to raise money for Coastal Seniors’ Meals on Wheel program. The mission is being called Miles for Meals.
Marlene will be completing the 165-mile trail over a one-month period, ending her hike on August 18. Micheline, Kim, Zephyr and Garret will complete a portion of the hike for the first five days- 31 miles each. The group has a goal of raising $7,000 - $8,000 to help feed local home-bound seniors who are unable to prepare meals for themselves.
Coastal Seniors’ Meals on Wheels program serves anywhere from 550 to 650 meals per month, depending on how many seniors are enrolled for the program during each month. Considering all expenses involved in the program (food, staff, rents, utilities, supplies, etc.), it costs between $7,000 -$8,000 per month to operate. This program is crucial to seniors living along the coast in isolated areas because it helps them age in place instead of living in care facilities. It has also become a place of security for many seniors from Irish Beach in Southern Mendocino County through Stewarts Point in northern Sonoma County who return home from the hospital after surgeries or procedures that make them temporarily unable to prepare meals during their recovery.

There are multiple ways to support the Meals on Wheels program through the Miles for Meals effort:

1. Donate a “per mile” pledge for an individual hiker

- $0.25 per mile
- $0.50 per mile
- $1 per mile
- $2 per mile
- $5 per mile

2. Donate a “per mile” pledge for all of the miles completed by the hikers collectively (a total of 336 miles)
- $0.10 per mile
- $0.20 per mile
- $0.50 per mile
- $1 per mile
- $2 per mile

3. Donate a flat rate pledge in increments of $5
