So far I have section hiked from Springer to Hot Springs, NC. I am about to have 7 days off of work and wanted to hike probably 4-7 days leaving from Hot Springs, NC and traveling North. I am bored at work and haven't looked at my maps yet and just wanted to get people's opinions on where a convenient place to stop would be. I would say 10-12 miles a day and I would be leaving my car at the start and having my girlfriend meet me at the end to give me a ride back to my car. Thanks in advance for all the advice.
