The average thru-hiker takes about 10 zeros the whole way to Maine...from what I've heard. (plus more "neros") I'm 10% done and I've taken 2 now, so it'll have to be back to business for a while!
Today was mostly lazy, ate a nice streak and eggs breakfast and then resupplied at the nearby Kroger (enough food to get me to Hot Springs hopefully)
In the afternoon we went in to Pigeon Forge and played mini golf and rode go karts with Colin and Marie. We had a good time but all that stuff is really pretty obnoxious. Especially when you consider I've been living in the woods for weeks.
Dinner is some great salmon and I am sad thinking about how full of food I've been this weekend, and how hungry I will soon be again
Sleeping in a bed is great but I'm also looking forward to the woods again, fresh air all the time, no traffic, and no obnoxious tourists!
It'll be painful to put on the pack again, filled with a full load of food. I did ditch a few things though, maybe that'll make a difference.
Hope you've enjoyed hearing about my encounters with civilization. Back to the trail in the morning!
