Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So… get on your way. -Dr. Seuss
The day started this morning by crossing the road and getting breakfast at Hardee’s. I know I’m really roughing it. But it’s a great place ask for a hitch because people have to slow down to go through the drive-through so when they’re driving out of the drive-through you say can you give us a ride to the trailhead. This man-Jonathan – gave us A ride to the hostel where I had of maildrop delivered. Then the hostel gave us a ride to the trailhead at no cost.
The volunteer groups that keep the trail open and nice are amazing lots of trees all over the trail and volunteers are up here with chainsaws cutting them out of the way. It is an amazing force of volunteers that takes care of the Appalachian Trail.
Finally crossing over a A small stream to get to the campground. Set up the tent and then started talking with the different hikers. A Hiker that I run into many times Kevin came strolling in and yelled Janet! I have a birthday present for you. And he handed me A mini bottle of vodka. He said if I slow down I would’ve gotten it sooner. He said he also had M&Ms but he got hungry and ate them.
Having a blast!
