Arizona Trail – Day 12 (0 miles)
Hospital visit for Square Pants! After yesterday’s bobcat attack, he went into the hospital for rabies shots. He got one in the shoulder and then 5 hours worth dotted around his puncture wounds. It looked rather painful!
He also found out that bobcats carry a high risk of rabies in the area. He would also need booster shots in 3, 7 and 14 days from now, and none of these could be missed. It looked like for a time that continuing his hike was not possible.
We sat down and did the maths and it looked like if he slows down a fair bit he can hit towns at the right times to make it work.
We stayed at Cake’s house that night and will be heading out onto the trail tomorrow afternoon.
Oh, tomorrow this heatwave of 100°F (38°C) will end!
