Today, I took it easy again in the morning. For some reason, I haven't had the motivation to get up super early in the last few days. Maybe because it's been frigid outside and condensation everywhere. We waited for the store to open at Warner Springs so that I could buy some things. I've decided at each stop, I want to pack out at least one bag of chips and one type of candy. I bought some ruffles, snickers and chap stick. As I was heading out, I ran into Eddie and Co. It was so great to see them but sad to be on my way out already. I don't think I headed out until 9am which is super late.
It was mainly a solo hike day. Nothing really eventful. It got super hot fast and I remembered why I hated hiking in the heat. I told myself that I would wake up early again starting tomorrow. If I make that plan, then I will stick to it. I will just have to suffer through the cold in the morning while packing up. So far my chafing has been ok. I've been putting some cream on it and I think it's healing. I just wanted to put something on it before it got worse. I fixed my lower back pain by adjusting my pack higher. The main pain now is just this weird numbing/tingling thing at the ball of my right foot to big toe. I fear that I may have early stages of Morton's Neuroma. I think I'm gonna ship myself new shoes soon. Maybe that'll help my feet since these will wear out soon.
I'm glad to be in bed early tonight. I shared a campsite with a Lil, she is from Walla Walla. It's supposed to rain soon but it hasn't happened yet.
