On the heels of the Tar Heel State: NC

It’s 9:47am and I’ve just returned to the Holiday Inn Express after a quick resupply at Ingles Supermarket. Pasta Side, taters, peanut butter (I’ll either just eat right out of the jar or spread on the tortillas I have), bagels that are good through May 25, a summer sausage (oh boy these are good), Crystal Light packets, and some Babybels.

Joyce is picking us up at 11:00am and dropping us back at Dicks Creek, and then it’s uphill for about nine miles to cross the GA/NC border; our plan is to camp at Bly Gap, mile marker 78.6 – not only will I have hiked over 75 miles, but I’ll have cleared the state of Georgia – what a great feeling, can’t wait to get to camp today — I miss my hammock!
