Day 17 – March 24 2017- 0 miles – Nantahala Outdoor Center (N.O.C.)
When I woke, I did not feel better.
Sometime in the late morning we slowly made our way over to the restaurant to get breakfast. I had some coffee and a light breakfast. I didn’t have much of an appetite.
After we ate we sat on a bench overlooking the river and watched people whitewater kayak. I took some ibuprofen and waited to feel better.
I felt terrible. Physically and mentally. We had just met a good group of people and now we had to stop. Not only that, I was holding Stoat back. I had been hiking slower than him the whole time and now I had caused him to stop completly. He didn’t complain, but I know he really wanted to keep moving.
We decided that if I didn’t feel better by the next day I would have to go to the doctor.
I shuffled back to the bunk room and went to bed.
