Appalachian Trail Map

Day 7

Rained in the morning. Till bout 930 10 when I took off. Bacon Jam (SoBo thru) left in the rain at 830. I left. Saw a couple bears then all of a sudden I look up and see one 10 feet away from me. I saw it first. I jumped back (wrong thing to do I think). Which startled the bear and it jumped back and immediately ran down the mountain. Bees stings all good aunt caroline! Dried out my sleeping bag and cooked at watauga dam. Met 3 guys from raleigh/cary/apex at the shelter. One of which comes to eat at the red robin I work at haha. Last night. Almost sad to know I'm leaving but very very exciting. Slowing down more than just foot pace.
