$85.75: KOA (Moab, UT)
Moab has a really nice urgent care center.
But I’m getting ahead of myself.
I start my day at Moab’s largest pool – at my KOA. At 10am, I’m the only one there. I float aimlessly, slowly batting myself edge to edge in a slow-motion water version of Pong.
There’s no bad view from the pool – mesas and mountains all around.
My last time out, I stub my tow really hard on the bottom step. Really hard. I try to walk it off, but it still hurts. I limp back to the trailer.
And stub it again, in the trailer. Again, hard. Ouch.
Well, at least I can drive to Canyonlands and enjoy the view from the car. But it’s too painful to put on a shoe. Well, I’ll go in flip-flops.
As I drive in that direction, I wonder, while I’m in a relatively large town, if I should go to an Urgent Care center to get this X-rayed.
Moab Regional Urgent Care may have the best view of any hospital.
And here’s the view inside my foot.
It’s a fracture of my 4th toe, but luckily it’s “nondisplaced” – a hairline fracture.
All I need to do is “buddy splint” for the next 4-6 weeks. Third toe: will you be My Buddy?
No hiking for a bit. I’ll enjoy Arches National Park from here.
At least it wasn’t my driving foot.
