Today was a pretty good day, did about 13 miles plus some backtracking due to uncertainty about where I was gonna sleep... Silly extra miles that would have been avoided had I looked at the map (you'd think after spending all that money on the maps I'd rely on them more!)
Couple of big hills today but nothing killer. Met some nice people along the way, including a guy that hiked the AT, PCT, and CDT. His advice was to keep up the motivation and this 10 words of 2 letters phrase: "if it is to be, it is up to me!"
Thanks for all the words of encouragement, got email reception for about 10 minutes :) my mom is fine after staying the night at a hiker hostel and she should be back in TN
So, 1% of the trail done! The rumor is tomorrow neel's gap has free all you can eat spaghetti supper... AMEN to that! Food is the religon of the trail :)
Hope all is well back in civilization. Crossed a highway today and a
guy was doing trail magic out of his car, creme brûlée flavored
almonds... Weird to see cars flying by. Tomorrow is blood mtn, hopefully I'll get over it with little
Ps text messages seem to be the best way to reach me if need be, they
load faster than email... Otherwise keep commenting and stuff ;)
