  1. Day 20: All Uphill

    Slept so well last night I didnít want to get up at all, but I made it back to the NOC by 9:30am. I only have 7 miles today, but over 6 miles of it is straight up hill. It sucked. I broke it up into 3 2 mile sections which helped. Made it to the shelter just before 3pm. My legs feel like noodles. Iím going to stay in the shelter tonight, so I donít have to set up my tent. Luckily, tomorrow is an easy day so I can take it nice and easy.

    Had a good night in the shelter. Apparently I snored a little. 😊 It wasnít raining, thankfully, but looked like it could any minute. It was 11.5 miles to NOC, mostly downhill. So I was motivated to make it by lunch and get out of the rain. It didnít rain on me too bad and I made it by 2pm. Had a delicious burger over looking the rapids. Booked a night at Gorgeous Stays to get out of the bad weather. I stayed in a little converted camper that was so cute! 🥰 There was also a school ...

  4. Day 18: Early Start

    Karaís dad gave us a ride to the trail head this morning. He picked us up at 6:45am 😒, but he was so nice to take us and stopped and got us breakfast at McDonalds. 10 mile day to Cold Spring Shelter. Hopefully, the early start will allow me to get a spot in the shelter since itís suppose to rain tonight and into the morning. It was a beautiful day. Leap frogged with about 7 other hikers all day. Then about a mile before the shelter I ran into the most amazing Trail Magic! They were a group ...

  5. Day 17: Attempted Slack Packing

    Had another wonderful pancake breakfast at First Baptist Church in Franklin. Today a group of us are planning to slack pack the next 10 miles. Itís suppose to rain, but we should be done before most of it roles through. I was glad to have the opportunity to break in my new boots. It was nice hiking without all the extra weight, however, at mile 2 the rest of the group decided to call it early and get off after 5 miles. I couldnít argue since they were my ride, but I found not being in charge rather ...
