3.2 miles hiked
Okay. I don’t know what the hell is going on. Last night I slept so badly. I was so hot even without my sleeping bag on me. I was sweating. Then I got super cold I needed it on me and my other clothes. Then hot again.
I woke up with an incredibly raw and sore throat. Hurts to swallow, chew and breathe.
Not sure how I’m going to hike up and down mountains today with my throat hurting like this with my normal breathing let alone with hiking. What do I do?
Why do I have such bad luck? Because first... the 3 mile break down a couple days ago, then this? Oh and don’t forget the weird ankle injury a week or so ago… seriously what the hell? I thought that everything that could have gone wrong would have been last year… ugh.
I’m sure there is a reason for me being sick but it certainly is not fun in this moment and I don’t see any upside right now.
I’m going to try a nap and some Tylenol PM to sleep it off a bit and maybe I can hike in the afternoon today if I feel better?
Definitely not feeling any better. Time to back track and find a hitch to town to get some meds into my body and see a doctor.
I walked back the 3.2 miles and met another section northbound Washington hiker so we hiked about a mile together for some human interaction.
That makes it about 15 miles I’ve hiked with someone else so far?
I got two hitches to get to Packwood. The second hitch offered me to stay with her for free at her air bnb while I got better which was amazing.
We went to the store so I could get some food, I watched a couple movies and laid down, doctor is closed till tomorrow so I can’t see them today.
I called up REI as well because my shoes should be here by Wednesday afternoon but I haven’t even gotten a notification for it being shipped so I’m a little worried about that. They said that they will get it there in time… so hopefully LOL.
We then ate burgers for dinner and played Rummikub. It was fun teaching her to play, and now she loves it.
Went to sleep around 9:30
