I started march 20th .. Inverted my knee during one of those rain filled embrace the suck days .... Basicly foot stayed in place, body went foreward and knee buckled backwards .... never felt anything like that ... then we got hail coming down and rushed on adrenaline to get down and back up towards hogpen gap ... needless to say, that night .. two in our group had our food bags raped ... i wasn't one of them ... but they were hung properly ... after that tho we started using the pct method with the suspended line and tent stakes or sticks ... anyway, this is about my knee ... My Xray came back normal ... MRI is tomorrow .. I'm gonna guess it's either a good meniscus strain or partial tear ... IN being optimistic he said i can continue with heavy anti inflamatory's and brace with good support ... so with all that blabbed on ... I live very very close to delaware water gap .. so i'm thinking if all is clear a flip flop from PA/NJ at the gap to maine, then from PA back to GA ... When would be a good time to head north from PA? May too early if i get the ok to continue? Or early june if i need more rest? I'd HATE to get a ride/train or bus back to georgia just to continue .. i'd like to keep hiking ASAP and flip sounds the best option .. if i head south, i might not hit baxter in time, and would rather not ride from georgia to maine just to hike back to pa .. see what i'm sayin? ... PA to MAINE, then PA to GA then home from gainesville ... If i did leave early what should i look for, black flies .. i know PA with ticks is an issue i'm used to it ... what about vermud? Am i leaving early enough or too soon?
