5 Years

Posted by OldBones-Larry Oct 21, 2018

I am counting down the hours till 11PM tonight. 

5 years ago today at that time, I finished my last sickorette. 

It was touch and go for a while, but I made it through. My many friends and supporters here made a big difference in doing so. When I needed help, they were there to help me over the rough spots.

I won't say it was easy, because it wasn't. I went through h#ll for a time. As time passed, it did get easier. The time between cravings got longer and longer.

Do I wish I had quit earlier? I have to truthfully say that I really do wish I had. I caused some permanent damage that will be with me always.

Anyway!! I am now free of those death sticks and will never touch another. Just one could cause severe health problems.

Travel safely friends, and know that you also can quit forever.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.



Laid Up

I hope this message gets through to people.

As I was crossing through some ruins, I was attacked from behind by several goons. 

They took me down and began stomping on me. I think there were six of them, but my memories of the event are very hazy.

I am having difficulty breathing as a result of this beating. I can only hope that this is just a result of bruising of the muscles and ribs.

I was told by the Bedoin that was with me that I was out for several days. I have been laying low trying to recover.

I was informed that the other Bedoins with me have been watching the trails to keep everyone safe.

I am sending this message in the hopes that he can get help to take me back to the mountain to go into the Healing Cave.

I will heal eventually and continue the trips across NML. 

Travel carefully friends. Nic could have set traps anywhere along the trail. His bunch could be hiding anywhere out there.

Take your journey one second, one minute, one hour, one day, or one week at a time.

One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
