The ankle plan
Ok – I made it out of the Smokies with the help of some pain killers. Apple – a trail magician- offered to give me a ride to town. I’m taking the opportunity to get the laundry done, the bounce box mailed, then I’ll hike the two miles to Syanding Bear Farm where I’ll pick up my new ankle brace – an “Aircast.” If it helps for the three days to Hot Springs, then I’ll continue the hike. I’ll post more pcs tonight.
