Not the ideal choice — I’d rather be hiking and hanging (in my hammock at camp) — but decided to take a zero today; it’s colder today than yesterday and the wind is a little stronger, too.
My plan is to head out tomorrow morning at 7:30am via shuttle to Uniqoi Gap and get back on the AT. My plan is to hike the 13.1 miles to Deep Gap Shelter and make camp. Next morning I’ll call ahead and make a reservation at the Budget Inn at Hiawassee and hike the short 6.6 miles to Dicks Creek Gap and stay the night.
Either that or hike the entire 17 miles given it’s pretty much downhill from Deep Gap.
I’ll decide tonight.
