Today I made it to Wadleigh Lean-to and installed the memorial plaque.
I told myself that I would not complain about my feet, knees, and ribs on my Southbound hike… well. ….I had fallen again on the left side ribs, but it still affected the right side… Very painful. My feet and knees are worse than before. I was sitting on a gravel road and a park Ranger was driving by and asked if I was ok. When he saw me try to walk be suggested the hike was over… I’m done.
It’s not a failure in any way. I accomplished so much more than I didn’t. It was an awesome moment in my life. It’s just time to go home and heal.You only fail if you never get off the couch and try!!!
