Years ago I came down with a very bad case of the flu about 4.5 miles out on a trail. Anybody else had such a "pleasure" in their hiking life?

A few weeks ago I got the tell-tale runny nose early in the morning of day one. Cut the day short at 7miles. Hiked out the next day with an unpleasant rhinovirus. Not the flu but was I glad to get to the car. I've thought about what it would be like to be 3-4 days in and get a knock-down bout of flu. No thanks.

I had food poisoning about a month ago; it felt close enough to the flu to not matter at the time!

The flu I had felt close enough to food poisoning not to matter when it started. The weird thing was I felt very much better when I got to the car; I even managed to eat something on the way home. That was a big mistake. Turned out to be the worst flu I have ever had and that burrito didn't look so good coming back up.

So it didn't come out OK in the end.

No, it came out the wrong end.

Is this thread bait?

Looks like it could work as a WAG bag too.
