Tomorrow Day 5 – Slack Packing

4 May 17. Pre-post for day 5

Unicoi Gap to Dick’s Creek Gap…talked myself into slack packing due to the weather.  It’s a long day with tough climbs, but….will be easier without 33lbs on my back.

16 miles is planned and has to be DONE because I won’t have my sleeping bag nor tent.

Top of Georgia Hostel last night and tonight.

Also, it’s kinda sad, but we are losing Karl & Keith.  They are headed back to Amicalola Falls then back home.

THANK YOU KEITH for this amazing example.  You inspired this young whippersnapper! I’ve been schooled.  He’s 71 years.
