I had a great breakfast at Elmers. Hit the post office and sent some stuff back. The pack weighed in at 44.12 lbs.
The hike was good but as before I didn’t want to leave. I really enjoyed the company of Numb and Not Yet. Tonight it’s Mr. Pat, Agatha, and me. It’s a cold one tonight, maybe in the teens or lower.
Five days to Erwin plus eight more to Damascus.
Scatman 2011- Wow, that was a short ass entry. I don’t mention it but instead of staying in the tiny cabin on the river Mr. Pat, Agatha, and some others who came into town all stayed at Elmers Hostel. Elmer owned a big old house right in town and he opened it to thru-hikers. The whole lot of us hung out and cooked a huge feast.
After the feast we cleaned up the kitchen then a few of the boys play the guitar and sang. It was a wonderful evening. Breakfast was another feast in of itself. I’m surprised I could hike after all that food.
Get out there!
