Tim writing now - why is this? - because it's my body that has now caused us to terminate this hike. At the Cajon Pass, in the hotel after 30 hours, dehydration snuck up on me, and Gerri had to call an ambulance to take me 20 miles to a hospital. After 18 hours and 6 bags of IV fluid, with a UTI, we took a cab back to the hotel and stayed 3 more days. The bigger issue has been my flat feet (and inward turning ankles), and at this point I have gone through two pairs of trailhiker shoes, and am now wearing hiking boots with my orthodics having been mailed to me from Ohio. With 5 days rest on the feet and hopefully better footwear for me, we were hoping for the best. I'd been taking 600 mg Ibuprofen to get through the last half of the hiking days for this whole adventure. We left Cajon Pass back onto the trail on Saturday (10 May) and after 5 miles, feet pain is already bad. We both knew over the last 100 miles of trail that my feet weren't progressing towards healthiness, but we still hoped for the best. So at Mile 357 we ate lunch and concluded that my feet will not be able to carry me another 2300 miles without continued misery, and make the 20 mile days eventually required to complete this trip as a through-hike. Gerri could have continued and built to those 20 mile days to succeed - she won't continue alone. So we are done and left to ponder what could have been. The next of our adventures may be just as crazy, but not as brutal on my feet. As for Gerri's PCT dream, not sure anything could replace it. Thanks for following us.
