The Place Hostel is looking for a donation of a Riding Mower, so we can cut the grass with volunteers and not have to pay a grass cutter. If anyone would like to donate a riding lawn mower please contact Roy (504) 343-3734 or Tom (276) 492-3983
Breakfast with the Boy Scouts so nice! Trey Gap to Dick's Creek Gap. Very difficult hiking with lots of blisters on my feet. Did 11 miles. Uphill hurts back of my legs, downhill hurts blisters. Got hikers toe (black toenail, about ready to fall off) Total of 69.2 miles so far with 2116 .3 to go. Spending tonight and tomorrow in a hotel so rest and take care of my feet. Lots of hikers doing the same since it is supposed to be a total washout on Monday down here. GA has been so welcoming it

141. miles.. Low Gap to Trey Gap. Total of 57.3 Miles 2127.2 to go.. Over blue mtn. Slept by beautiful brook. Level trail but then got into mountains. 50 degrees during the day. Only a few other hikers along the way. Very discouraged with painful feet. But then TRAIL MAGIC!! 2 Boy Scout Troops 24 and 605 with a tent serving hot dogs, chili, drinks etc. Ended up spending the night w the troop by the fire. Made me feel so much better!

After great night in Mountain Crossings hostel, did 11.5 miles today for total of 43.2 miles. Only 2142 to go! Did 4 peaks today - Levelland, Cowrock, Wildcat (not the one in NH) and Poor Mountain. Shelter and camp were full so pitched tent by river's edge. Beautiful. Great weather in the 60's. Did first 7 miles w Hobo, new buddy, and then rest by myself. Came to a gorgeous valley that was so QUIET it was amazing. Hiking more efficiently since the great staff at Mountain
