This is what ended my trip

Journal Entry

24th Day Monday Aug 20.

Last night we had dinner in the main dining room of Timberline lodge. We thought it would be a dinner buffet but it was a high end white table cloth limited menu cuisine with nothing under $ 30 but we went for it anyway. Larry and Joanne went with the chicken but I decided splurge and ordered the Scallops. That was a bad mistake, by the time we got back to our room my stomach was rumbling and I was getting abdominal cramps. I spent the rest of the night on the pot as the Scallops worked their way thorough my system. By this morning I was greatly dehydrated and not feeling at all like hiking. Since Joanne had to be done with the hike by Aug 23 she elected to go on by herself and I rode back to Springfield with Larry. So due to the fires in southern Oregon and food poisoning I only got 324.1 miles in this trip but for a 75 year old I guess thats enough.
