Appalachian Trail Map
Sunday night we camped outside the shelter at trey mnt and meet some new people there. A young couple w dread locks named Tia and Hans. Trail names 23 and canckles. Another couple bob and Liz whose music store burned and no insurance and 2 boys Tim/kool aid and josh/morning sickness. These 2 collected a ton of fire wood and let us all sit by the fire.
First thing Monday AM, I stumbled and pulled a muscle in my calf so it was slow going. Kelly knob was REALLY tough but we made it and after 8 miles got to deep creek shelter fairly early. We were second ones there so had great choice of campsites. A retired state trooper/bags was there first and soon 'nigjhtlight' showed up. He was an older, weathered guy that collected wood for the fire. After a single woman / Midwest mom came in. She had a hilking buddy but was a day ahead of her so was alone. About 4-5 others showed and we hung out at the fire and talked. One guy, TICO, was a character. He got all his clothes and some food from boxes of things others has left. He was out of food so we all have him some. These sandals he picked up
Has a blow out so he was looking for some shoo glue. Oh. ....the stories he told!! He was either a HUGE bullshitter or doing an experiment/docentary I the AT. Kind of strange but he made us laugh so hard!!!
We hiked out this am after 3-4 miles and joe picked us up. I hated to top
As we r almost done w Georgia but it gives me something to look forward to.
