I hiked without my pack today, a luxury. Sly (yes, I got in a car with a guy named Sly!) gave me a shuttle to Allen Gap along with two young men. They were hiking north and I was hiking back to the hostel. It was 14.5 miles, a huge day for me. But the sky was sunny, the air temperature warm enough that I didn’t need a jacket after the first couple of miles, though I did hike in snow most of the day.
then I walked the length of Broad Street in Hot Springs (which is the actual trail) and back to the hostel.
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.
