“The saddest journey in the world is the one that follows a precise itinerary. Then you’re not a traveller. You’re a tourist.” Guillermo del Toro
Miles hiked zero.
Since we came back to finish this journey I have been trying to figure out how to end it. After climbing Katahdin, just coming to a town seemed a let down. Then I looked at a map and realized that if I continued hiking south one more day I would be at McAfee Knob.
McAfee Knob is probably the most photographed place on the Appalachian trail because of its wonderful view and a rock that hangs over a valley. I decided it is where I wanted to end this last part. So Hugh and I got in the RV and headed south to Tennessee to pickup where I left the trail.
I will now hike north once again and end up at McAfee Knob. It will be a fitting place to end this monumental hike.
Today was just a rest day. I will start hiking again tomorrow.
