Speed – 2.23 mph

Last night was the thunder and lightening show with plenty of rain.  So this morning I was a little slower to get going…already tarnishing my new trail name up&ready!

However, the mornig hike over Big Bald was great.  A little more uphill than I wanted, but I made it. It made me think about Julie Andrews singing “The hills are alive with the sound of music…”


I’m having a little lunch at Big Bald Shelter before continuing on to my place for the night….only 10.6 more miles to go to No Business Knob Shelter.

Wow…I thought heading to Erwin was supposed to be downhill, but boy was I wrong.  Spivey Gap was definitely an uohill battle late in the day.

Another long day…but tomorrow is a Nero in Erwin at Uncle Johnny’s hostel.
