Hiking again!

Hello all!
So busy last couple of weeks. First, my trip was almost halted permanently by my sore feet. I could hardly walk, or bear weight especially once we stopped hiking each day. My mother came up to slack the band up the trail, and instead I made we drive me to a foot doctor in Philly. After two painful cortisone shots, it took a few days for my feet to heal up, but they did! In wonderful fashion as well. My horribly painful right foot is now nearly always pain free. I have developed the PF in my left foot, but we are working on it. Stretching, and wearing socks at night that stretch the muscles have really helped. Mom slacked us for 10 days up the trail. She has left, and we are at mile 1300! 800 more miles to hike. Sounds easy really. Lots of Photos to come
