Highway Camp (402.3) to Grants (411.3)
An early start. We all wanted to get into the town of Grants with enough time to eat, get some town chores done and hopefully rest.
First stop was Denny’s. I craved fruit. And the craving was satisfied. Next step was to down some calories. About 1500 in total for the morning.
I picked up my bounce box from the post office, what an effort. Six miles later and I’m back at the hotel. What was I thinking. This is not a compact trail town.
I showered and washed laundry. Then I discovered a problem. Seems that I don’t just have foot fungus but an infected cut on the bottom of my foot. I walk barefoot around camp so I might have slices it open one evening.
Just touching it is rather painful. I fear if it doesn’t get better soon I may need some days off trail to recover. Infected toe, fungal infection, life is great hiking the CDT. Time will tell if the infection is major or minor.
