First, thanks to everyone who is following my blog. I like the comments, so keep them coming!
Today: 11.5 miles. Total: 43.2 miles.
(Footnote: to keep things simple, I am not adding the 8 miles I did on the approach trail. With those miles added, I broke 50 miles today!)
Left the hostel knowing it was supposed to rain today, and it did! Words for the day: mud, rain, wind, and more mud. Hardest part was going down hill and trying not to fall in the slippery conditions.
Trail Magic. What inspires a group of people to go out on a miserable day, set up a canopy on the side of a road that intersects the AT, and feed hungry hikers for a few hours? Many of us hikers were treated to hamburgers, hot dogs, fruit and drinks, all we could eat! Wonderful! And… I received two blessings for a safe journey. Thanks so much to the Echo Ministries for the food and fellowship. Your kindness is greatly appreciated!
