Success !!!!

Posted by OldBones-Larry Dec 4, 2018

Late yesterday I received a report that a band of thugs was working on a trap for travelers through NML.
I gathered a party and rushed to the area. We found them working away and they had no idea that we had arrived.
The Sheik and I studied the terrain and determined the best plan to follow.
We rushed in and began trying to capture them. They fought back with a vengeance after they realized they were under attack.
The battle went back and forth for quite a while with injuries on both sides.
The Sheik led a party around to fall on the rear of their party. When he attacked, he discovered that their leader was there. After a fierce fight, they captured this guy.
We finally forced them to surrender.
Though they begged me to take them with me, I left them to the tender mercies of the Sheik and his Bedoins. I am very sure that these guys will enjoy their stay in his camp.
The trap they had been setting was dismantled and the parts destroyed and broken up.
I arrived back at the mountain this morning. I will drop into Carp's Cave and see what's for breakfast.
I must then finish loading the caravan that is returning to the trailhead with supplies. We will also stop and resupply each oasis along the trail.
Travel safely and watch closely for any trap that might be laid along the trail.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be,

Sleep Study

Posted by OldBones-Larry Dec 3, 2018

Last Friday I visited my neurologist. I was there to check on the results of my latest sleep study.

I finally slept long enough to get a great reading. Five hours of data later, I am diagnosed as having Obstructive Sleep Apnea. 

I had plenty of episodes of apnea and Oxygen desaturation to warrant a PAP machine. At one point I dropped to 74% saturation. 

The RLS has been treated very well with medication and was non-existant on this study.

I will be going back to the center this Sunday night to titrate a PAP machine. I should have mine here at home by the end of the month.

To those traveling NML, remain strong and be wary of the traps Nic and his bunch have set out there. Trust your camel as she will know the path across the desert.

To those just beginning your quit journey, trust in yourself and the support of those that have gone before you. We are all ready to give aid as needed. 

Wishing all safe travels.....

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