Wednesday, April 6th - Day 13 - Mile 79.3 - In North Carolina!
Left Plumborchard this morning with Stopwatch, Optimist, Momma Dee, and Silver Eagle.
Had a wonderful walk with no issues today. The weather is cold but clear and beautiful. Crossed into NC at 11:00 AM this morning and finished this afternoon at Muskrat Creek Shelter.
NC greeted us with a solid 1 hour up-hill which had everyone talking at camp.
It's interesting the things you think about as you walk along. One is a title for an article on hiking...each day it's different..."7 days on the AT", "11 days on the AT", "Hiking the AT in Georgia"...etc.,etc. Each day the title will get more ambitious.
Tomorrow I'm hoping to extend my daily mileage a bit and shoot for Carter Gap Shelter at mile 91.8.
We have a huge crowd here tonight, both here in the shelter and tenting. Hopefully the big crowds will begin to die down by mid month.
Dinner is finished, bear bag hung and ready to turn in for the night.
