Well, I managed to get A prescription from my doc for anti-inflamatories that worked well in the past for reducing swelling of these problem discs in my neck. But it’s still pinching a nerve that hurts like hell. I’ve been out ofcommission for days and it’s impossible to squeeze painkillers out of anyone. If you have a few old hydrocodone (Vicodin) or oxycodone (percoset) please, please send them to me in Idyllwild. I’m dyin.

Annie and I and Enviro Pyro went to a mellow yoga class yesterday that helped my mobility, but I’m still fairly crippled. Icing my neck and left arm where the nerve pain shoots down. I bruised below my elbow where the pain culminates, I dunno if I was trying to strangle it or what!
I need to fix some things on my tent but can’t muster the effort. Annie went out and got me a yummy coffee and I made my fav buckwheat breakfast. People in town are great, Idyllwild is a super town! We watched part od American Idol (ah, this is why I’ve never owned a TV..) cuz a local guy is on the show. Annie and I liked him best! We will move to the more convenient Idyllwild Inn tonight, then try to get a ride to the kickoff in Lake Morena tomorrow.
We will e back in Idyllwild after depending on my back condition. Thinking about Southbounding the Taquitz/Appache peak section so it’s more downhill and we can sleep at lower elevations. Uphill slogs have murdered my back and Annie’s a very cold sleeper so this seems a wise choice. Also it would allow us to hang in lovely Idullwild again and another meal at the Paradise cafe on Hwy 74!!!
I look forward to seein the gear vendors at the KO and shopping for a solo tent as well as entering some of my inventions in he contest! In the meantime I’m a useless Immobile mess, boo!
