so I've made it up to mile 135.  another 28 miles since i last blogged. 
so on 3/23 we got a late start.  we hiked 11 miles and we started at noon time. there was  tons of snow! had to use my tire chains for my boots. i hiked in two cheese burgers.  what a good lunch!  we made it to wayah look out a really cool stone tower.  u could see where we came from nd u can see the smokies and the snow on the peaks.   i slept in my new sleeping bag its very warm but its also huge. i think after the smokies I'll switch it out for a lighter one.

3/24 so last night i got to try out my new stove. when i took it out i drop the fuel canister straight down the hill and it rolled and rolled. gone forever.  thank god i i brought 2!   in the after noon i came upon this gap and saw a bunch of hikers hanging out. come to find out a forrmer thru hiker grits was set up there.  he had cheese burgers and cold soda's what a good find!  burgers two days in a row. can i go for the hat trick?   finally had a warm sunny day i got a sunburn.  we got to climb up a old fire tower and had some more cool views.  Wesser tower is a rickety tower. i was a little nervous going up.  there were amazing views.
