Things went very smoothly today. I’m just as surprised as you are.
(I had to backtrack on the Trail to my previous tent site and start from there to ensure I didn’t leave any gaps in my hike.)
I got a hiker shuttle to Stecoah Gap and walked south the 3.2 miles back to the tent site where I had lain helpless those several days.
I looked at that spot. It looked at me. I think we reached an understanding. We hugged awkwardly, and I left.
I started traveling north again (yay!) and ended up tonight in my tent at my current campsite by myself. Nobody around.
The hiking went great though— it was uneventful!
I stopped at 1p.m. and facetimed my sister Yvonne who hosts the annual family Easter dinner at that time. I got to see the delicious hams, the mashed potatoes and peas, the desserts, and when Kenny showed up with the lime beer— I knew all was right with the world. (Oh- and I saw my brothers and sisters.😬)
Other than that, the weather was beautiful and I felt good. I think the doxycycline, probiotics, and multi-vitamins are already on the job. And, compression socks are helping my calf. (I got the vitamins and compression socks just this morning—thanks to Memory reminding me.)
I can envision a whole new way of being now and am really hopeful.
Here is some Easter Candy I found along the way.
