  1. Day 78: Long Day

    Today we are going to try to do 18 miles to Bobblets Gap Shelter. We started the day off with a climb, but there were a lot of switch backs so it wasnít that bad. It started to rain around noon for about 30 minutes. Weíre entering that time of afternoon showers. Luckily the sun comes out after and dries you out quickly. We took a nice long break at a shelter around mile 11. This helped rejuvenate me for the rest of the day. Looked like it was suppose to rain again about 6pm, but luckily it just ...

  2. Day 77: Cautionary Zero

    Taking another zero today in case I have a reaction. Didnít get a fever or anything but didnít have much energy. Spent the day in the room chilling. Surprisingly most of the other hikers I know did a 2nd zero as well, so it didnít really set me back which feels nice.

    Todayís goal is to get my 2nd COVID shot. Needs to be Moderna and so far every place Iíve called only has Phizer. Started the day slow since most places werenít open yet on a Sunday. Had lunch at the Three Little Pigs and then went to Kroger to resupply. When I got back to the hotel there was a group getting a shuttle into Roanoke.

  4. Day 75: McAfee Knob

    A group is getting there packs brought to Daleville and then slack packing there. We decided to jump on that. It is 26 miles and we had originally planned to take 2 days to do that section, but I hear the terrain isnít that bad. Plus I need to get my second COVID shot and will need to take 2 zeros for that, so this will make up time. We got started about 7:30am. Sun sets about 8:45pm, so we want to give ourselves as much time as we can so weíre not night hiking. Started out the day breezing through ...

  5. Day 74: 700 miles and Dragonís Tooth

    After yesterdayís zero Iím ready to get back at it and slack pack the 15 miles to 4 Pines Hostel. The start today was smooth and the ups not that bad. Made it to Dragonís Tooth in the afternoon. Lots of people climb it and get there picture on the top, but I took one step and freaked. It is very slick rock and a very long drop if you fall. I did not have the confidence to even try. The next mile is exactly what the other hikers mentioned. It was rocky and a lot of rock scrambles. Thankful I donít ...
