Total Miles: 469
Last night I threw out the option of pushing it today to make it into town. I really wanted to beat out the cold that Saturday was going to bring and additionally wanted to take 2 zeros to get healthy.
My tramily of Planner, Log jam, and Yak
So. We headed out and a couple miles in were hit with another small breakfast trail magic which I unfortunately forgot to get a pic of them.
Then we headed on and the AT led us through someone’s property and into where their cows roam. It was honestly pretty neat.
Then we hiked on for a while and came to road where there was yet even more trail magic!!!!!
They had everything soup, burgers, hot dog, sweets, coffee, anything. It was two guys from Louisiana who love to come out for a few days and cater to us. One of the guys plans to hike it in a couple years.
And did you see in that picture with keith who I reunited with???!
We were both in shock to have seen each other. He hiked the remainder of the day with us.
We are going to take a couple zeros here.
Currently at a church hostel that only asks for a 7 dollar donation.
Ehhh… We will take it!
We settled in and ate dinner Mexican food and went to the grocery store so I could get some natural products and cold medicine to kick this cold.
A couple days off will do me good.
I can’t believe I am doing this. I can’t believe the beauty my eyes are seeing. I can’t believe the miles my legs have walked.
This is already an incredible journey. Every day is a new adventure and I am loving it. Through sickness and pain. Loving it.
But yes. I really do miss my family and friends and all of the support I receive either through social media, text, phone call, or care package.. Means the world to me.
So thank you for caring about me and rooting me on to accomplish my dreams. ❤️
