Oh, what’ll you do now, my blue-eyed son?

After a week of rest with dimimishing returns, Trail Angel Rich got me into a radiology place.  It’s official, a Jones fracture, non-displaced at least.  Weeks of feet-up rehab.  My theory is that the massive spill on day3 left some damage that strangely was not healed by 16 more 20 mile days.

I can get to LAX in a day, and 1 day, 1 way plane tickets really aren’t that pricey.  But I’ve heard the SoCal coast is nice, and I know a few hikers that could use rides, so I might stick around for a few with a rental, giving some karma back.

    That’s a great idea and attitude: to stick around and help some of the other hikers and enjoy the sunshine. Rest up. ❤

    Oh, Ed, so sorry to hear this! If it’s any compensation, that’s the most common fracture! Often happens to soldiers who have long marches. Enjoy California for a while.

    I am so sad for you to hear this. I hope you do stick around in a rental for a while, and hope your foot feels better.

    That really bites, I can’t believe you hiked that far on a broken foot! So sorry that happened 🙁

      Dont think it was exactly broken the whole time. It’s kind of the thing I would do, though.

    Oh crap. Good attitude you have; I’m sure you are disappointed. Stick around, help some others, enjoy! Take care of that foot, too!
