Friday August 4, 2017 Buena Vista Colorado Day 11
A bad day of altitude Sickness
I woke up at 4am this morning feeling real sick and it only got worse. We were camped at 11 thousand feet.
I couldn’t drive and was real incompassitated and really out of it. I couldn’t really do much of anything and couldn’t even think straight.
The guys decided Dennis would drive my van and I crashed out in the back of Marty’s van and we headed down to seven thousand feet at Buena Vista.
They parked me at a town park and I tried to recover some and I did a bit while they went out to find motels for the night.
Unfortunately the park closed at 10PM so I had to find some other place to camp for the night. The old van attracts people so I talked with some locals and found a nice place by some railroad tracks and this American Legion. Since I’m a vet I thought this place would work for the night by the railroad tracks.
I’m still not feeling too good and hope to do better tonight, I hope.
Not a good day.
Better today and on the way south.
