Day 8: Takin It Easy

Rate this Entry
Had a great sleep last night. Woke up warm and cozy. Only 7.3 miles today, so no rush. The first 5 miles was a gradual uphill which was great on my knee. Ran into Justin again on trail. He is wearing his grandfathers WW2 uniform and pack. When I meet him at Neels Gap he would only talk to me in riddles, so havenít gotten much of his story yet. Made it to Blue Mountain Shelter around 3pm and set up my tent. Got my first 🔥 of the trip. I love the smell of a burning wood fire. Itís suppose to start raining tonight and all day tomorrow. Itís another 2.4 miles to Unicoi Gap. Iím going to get shuttled to a hotel tomorrow to get out of the bad weather. The high Thursday is 40, so I donít want to get wet and then freeze 🥶.
