Day 17: Attempted Slack Packing

Rate this Entry
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 frustrating. Iíve been warned about getting locked into a trail family too early. Donít be pushed to do too many or too few miles or stay in town if you donít want to. So I think Iím going to move on from this group because we just donít seem to be in sync. Iím sure Iíll see them around, but Iím just not going to cater my plans to theirs. Spent the rest of the day chilling around town. Of course the rain didnít come like they predicted.
