Zero day

Yesterday evening I ate mass quantities of pizza and beer and watched
TV,,,,,to many channels to scroll through.
This morning about daylight I walked to hardies for some coffee and
breakfast, remind me to never eat those greasy potato rounds again. Later I
walked to Walmart about 3 miles away. I picked up some lunch ready to eat
type items and a giant canister of fuel for the jet boil. I would rather
have a small can of fuel but this is what they have I wish Walmart still
carried mountain house FD food instead of that crappy Coleman stuff they
have now. Lipton noodles are better than the Coleman meals and half the
cost. It was snowing Pretty hard when I left Walmart. I did not have to
walk very far before I got a ride back to the motel.
I will be staying here again tonight, waiting on a package that is supposed
to come today. The Motel has a deal if you stay three nights you get the
forth night free. Normally you have to choose when you arrive but for me
they said I could decide day by
day and just pay before I leave. this is a perk I get since I have got to
know the service providers from being a field editor for the ALDHA
Companion for many years.

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
