Pinhoti Trail: NERO to Cave Spring

Day: 27

Yesterday’s Goals:

Walk into Cave Springs, take a long hot shower, and relax.


Activities of The Day:


I didn’t sleep that well last night again. However, I woke up around 9:30 this morning, relaxed, packed up, and started walking around 10:45.

A cute little cat greeted me when I got onto the road.

I got into Cave Springs around 11:30.

I walked to the grocery store and got some chips and two cokes. Then I got lost finding the Inn. Cave Springs did not disappoint you all.

Once at the Inn, I sat outside, charged my devices, and used my cork ball on my feet, but I mostly relaxed. I took a much-needed hot shower and washed my clothing. I may have messed up my quilt, though; I’ll have to wait until it drys to be sure.

I’ll be eating dinner shortly while watching television, just relaxing.


What’s Ahead:


When I talked to Salty the other day, he told me to eat at Southern Flavor for their all-you-can-eat catfish. He claims it’s the best he has ever had. The reviews say the same. That’s the plan: eat a lot of catfish. There is also a steakhouse here that I will be eating at, along with a Mexican restaurant.



Eat, relax, but mostly eat.
