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.

Spring Mtn. Shelter

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!
