Larry Fitterer: The Scott Creek Gauntlet – Postscript


Hi John,

I just got caught up at Pescadero Memories.  I’m especially enjoying the correspondence around Monty Parker.  Thanks as always for your gracious words.

I think I neglected to mention that I took a nasty fall during my hike on while getting in position to take a picture of Obstacle 3, The Wall.  The good news is that I managed to hang on to my iPhone (as a younger man, it might have been a beer!).  The bad news is that I landed hard on my right forearm and shin.  The impact was jarring but I shook it off, continued on my way, and pretty much forgot about it.

Several days later, however, the pain in my shin and ankle increased beyond the point of distraction.  I made a trip to Urgent Care and discovered that I have a hairline fracture of my right fibula and a sprained right ankle.  The doctor advised me to take Motrin for the pain and take it easy.  So I will rest up a bit, but I look forward to more coastal adventures.  I would love to explore the Seven Sisters with you and perhaps anchor a rope to the top of the Scree Slope.  Something to look forward to.

I hope all is well with you and Meg, and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Take care,
