Had a great dinner last evening with about 20 other hikers. Lots of stories, laughs and good food. Today we're just hanging out and enjoying our time in Hot Springs.
Again we seem to be under a lucky star since rough weather is supposed to be rolling through and we'll be warm and secure at Elmer's.
This morning we had a delicious community breakfast here. Yes, more food. Everyone introduced themselves and we found we had quite a cross section of professions from budding doctors to engineers.
Tomorrow we (Buffalo Bobby, Silver Hiker, Purple Haze and a host of others) leave after breakfast for our next destination - Erwin about 70 miles away - hopefully in about 5-6 days. Looking good to be in Damascus for Trail Days.
Guardian is taking a few days off here in Hot Springs with his wife, which I know he's looking forward to. I've really enjoyed his company and hope to reconnect up the trail somewhere.
See you back on the trail.
