I get up and go along, thinking the pain will cease, but soon I realize that I am in the grip of an old enemy, lumbago. From this point on to Seward I cannot make a move without pain, sometimes so great that I gasp for breath. At night in the roadhouse I have great trouble in getting into my bunk, and sometimes Breeze has to lift me out in the morning. Were I at home I would be in bed for a couple of weeks with doctors and nurses fussing over me, but it is just as well that I cannot stop. I take the philosophy of an old fellow in the "Rainy Pass Roadhouse " near the summit of the range, who says the best cure for a lame back is to " keep on a-mushin' " Beyond Rainy...
