My back is aching. I cant get comfortable in my seat. Its actually been stiff and hurting for a few days but this is bad. Its twitchy.
It’s nothing new I’ve had this since I was 20. When I strain it it sometimes spasms and when that happens it’s all over.
I stop in the town of Muscatine Iowa for some food. I hobble down main street too tight to stand up straight. I pass a chiropractor office. Well there’s a sign. I go in ‘Hi I’m Dave. I built…Do you take walk ins?
I explain to the young doctor(?) My problem and he goes to work. He stretches me really far and massaged a couple of places then smashes me down on the table a couple of times.
I’m done. I check into the only hotel downtown. The Merril. A brand new fancy business hotel. A get a good rate and a river view. Still it’s too fancy for this trip. All I need is a place to rest.
I lay on the bed the rest of the day icing down my back. I begin too think I cant finish this.
