Hot Springs – Meeting Friends along the AT

25 May 2017



AT – 273.4 miles

Today – 17.9 miles

Time – 7 hrs

Speed – 2.55 mph


Today, I rolled into Hot Springs.  It was great for a few reasons.  First, it was mostly downhill.  Not a steep downhill, but a gradual downhill…the kind I like.  But more importantly….I got to meet up with old friends who were my Trail Angels.

They drove out of their way, made me dinner, took me for a resupply run at Wally World, cleaned me up and gave a big soft bed for the night.  This is my kond of town visit!

Right now, I’m feeling loved.

Who are these trail angels  — Bob & Toni Williams.

A BIG Thank You goes out to this wonderful family.

I’m up late and a little tired…so I’m off to sleep.
