Continental Divide Trail Map

Interuption

Coffee served at 0600 on trail. Thanks, Flop. Nice way to start the day.
Unfortunately for me I've got a major 'thing' going on: the pain in left stomach quadrant continues. It is not (only) the pack but primarily M-E. Don't know what the cause but I do know continuing to hike just won't cut it. I am just slowing down my two partners who are quietly and patiently bearing with my slowed pace.
Plan: really pursue this medical issue and correct it. Return to the CDT and finish it.
Mark calls Sam Blom, a trail angel/driver in Leadore at a high point where cell com service is real. Sam agrees to our 1000 rendezvous at Lemhi Pass which is adjacent to the Sacagawea Memorial.
I meet La Forlera, a southbounder, while the fellows get their water. I learn that water is indeed available six miles north on the first alternate trail. Nice surprise as Ley and Guthook speak of a 19 mile hiatus without water. Pass info along to the boys.
Well, I am very disappointed. I did not expect to interrupt. On the other hand, continued pursuit was not a viable alternative for me. So, let's resolve the issues and do it next year.

Learn, change and grow.
