So far, this is my favorite trail town. I’d consider moving here to retire someday, just to stay near to the trail. Despite the snow overnight, it turned into a beautiful day, sunny but windy. Better tomorrow. So I’ve arranged a slack pack of 14.5 miles (Allen Gap south back to the hostel). That’s big miles for me but we are starting early and I won’t be carrying much. Plus I’ll get to sleep in a bed for another night.
Today I went to an impromptu church service, checked out the town, made a few purchases at the outfitters……and the really good news: I got to weigh myself. I’ve lost EIGHT pounds. Yup. That’s the AT diet plan.
I'm a professional vagabond. I quit my cubical job in January 2014. Since then, I've hiked the Appalachian Trail, The Camino, and taught English in Vietnam, Turkey, Russia, Spain and Mexico. I'm exploring the world.
