Appalachian Trail Day 40
04-08-01, Day 40
As I said, I had breakfast at Mountain Mans café, thanks to Jack and Bag of Tricks.
Later I hung out at the outfitter, wrote postcards, bought fuel and a fleece sleeping bag for later on down the trail, had more pizza, shopped for more food, made calls and hung out more. I did laundry yesterday, too.
Today was low key. Got some ice cream after dinner. Food is all that matter if you cant tell.
Tomorrow it’s back to the trail. 4-5 days to Atkins.
Scatman 2011- Zero days can drag since the towns are usually pretty small and it’s not like there’s a movie theater or mall to go window shop at. The highlight of the day was at the King Dairy, an old Dairy Queen. I got my ice cream and was sitting outside when Mr. Pat came out and asked me for some change. I asked why he said to just listen. With in moments the “Scatman” song by Los Del Mar who do the Macarena. Later down the trail I would tell the Scatman Story many times.
Get out there!
