I was not prepared for the 84 degree weather getting off the plane in Atlanta, but I was totally ok with it. We have been SPOILED rotten with this weather. Shorts and a T-shirt for the first 2 days of hiking. It’s beautiful out here.
I am thrilled.
We’ve met some amazing people so far, and one really awesome dog. We just got into neels gap, and split a cabin with a father and son team from Maine. Life is good. We might take our first zero tomorrow to avoid some rain, but who knows.
Thanks for all the well-wishing. Phone battery drained the first night, and service has been really hard to come by, but I’ll try to get something up every week. Tune in for more trail news!
