One week until CT for real: June, 2022


Still training for Colorado Trail. Leave for Trail early June.

Been planning since December, 2021.  Will West to East. Still  not fast, just determined.  Remembering Abe Lincoln’s advice which goes something like: “I don’t walk fast. But I never go backwards.” Good advice for a fossil like me…..heck….. was on walker all Feb. March and April. Will send photo t0 P.T. dude.  Fell off bike.  He helped me stand and walk again. Props for HIM!

Still hindered by lousy back fractures. I hope to  carry heavy and not suffer  falls. Will take X rays upon return and see. Not scared, just cautious and alert.  I will drive to Amarillo, spend the night then boogie into my hike the next day. Complicated car logistics….

My theory: The more oxygen for any injury the better. Not a doc, but will let ya know.

So: I will just walk, hope for best and NEVER walk backwards!
