Post Hike: Day 5
We left Ouray before dawn. It was eerie driving up the winding mountain road between Ouray & Silverton in the dark. It got a little better when it got light. We had to stop in Silverton to pick up a pair of shoes Nancy had mailed to me. The motel office didn't open until 7 am. We got there a few minutes before that & found a coffee shop open that served some pastry. That was breakfast.
After picking up my shoes, we headed toward Durango. The plan was to get cell service & call my Doctor's office and get an appointment for Thurday afternoon. We were planning to push hard to get closer home. Once we got to Durango, we called. Long wait time before a scheduler came on the phone. We had no luck getting an appointment w/ my doctor or any other doctor in my clinic or two other clinics in Austin for Thursday afternoon or anytime on Friday. I did get an appt for Mon. Must be a lot of people sick in Austin.
It was a long boring drive into Texas. We stopped for the night in Brownfield.
Almost There... Just Around The Corner!
I'm tired, I'm hungry, I'm thirsty... Are we there yet?
