Sad news-off the trail
Well my friends, I only imagined starting the trail and finishing it, but that's not how it went. I injured my knee, not really sure when, I always felt strong and ready to go, but it started to hurt and every step became painful and each step down, a testimony to pain. So, enter a trail angel by the name of Cathy, who drove into the backroads of the 100 mile wilderness and took my sorry butt out of there. (is "butt" foul language?) I got an ER assessment and rested 3 days before deciding to go home. Super sad day!!!!! Still in much pain, just got back to SD today. Trying to keep my chin up.
Was great to see other hikers on the trail, including WCGornto and Bob McCaw.
