Chaunce’s AT Vlog #03: Neel Gap – Hiawassee

Make it Neel Gap – check!

Score a spot at the hiker hostel – X

A kind employee took me in and let me crash on his floor, though, so it worked out.

I hiked solo for the day, forced myself to take breaks and chug water, and assessed the health of my right knee before ending my day at Low Gap Shelter. This video is a big one.  I finally had to shed a layer of clothing at one point. A monumental event that boosted morale.

The next morning, I complete my first 10 by 10 (10 miles by 10 a.m.) before descending in Hiawassee for a quick resupply.
