Scott Valley

Go feet go feet go
Red sun rising through the smoke
Clinic time and meds

The neighbors alarm went off for 25 minutes but no one stirred. Enough of that. I was going to get up early anyway. Was on trail by 540 am. Passed the 1600 mile mark! Made it out to the highway just before 930 am. It maybe only took 10 minutes to get a hitch. A mother and son from Oklahoma. They had lots of news of recent tornado action.

Got dropped at the hiker hut. Shower. Laundry. Went into town. As I walked, I inspected my left wrist which had a couple spots that had really started to hurt the last day. Since my shower, I was able to see a red line extending up to my elbow. As much as I would like to ignore, I knew this was no bueno. In my walk around town I found a clinic and was able to get an appointment.

Etna brewery. Shopping. Rest. Meds delivered from Yreka riteaid because there no longer is a pharmacy in Etna. There are tons of hikers here. Maybe 30. Reunions abound. Watching the movie Hook from my bunk. Pretty sweet set up except that two of my "older" bunk mates are kinda being rude to other hikers. Yo, you're at a hostel and you're sleeping next to the bathroom. Get a grip!
