Day 50: Met Bob; Legend of the trail

Rate this Entry
Today was a pretty easy terrain day. Beautiful weather today. Had lunch at Moreland Gap Shelter. There was a group of hikers held up there due to sickness. Some stomach bug was workin itís way through the group. Kept our distance and moved on. We decided to push to Kincora Hiker Hostel since it was suppose to start raining tonight. Bob Peoples has been running that hostel since 1997 and has hosted almost 25,000 hikers. Itís a dingier place, but not too bad considering heís in his 80s. He leaves food out on the porch for cats, raccoons, opossums and a bear. Luckily, I only saw the cats and the raccoons. Got to listen to him tell stories about the AT. Hopefully, Iíll be sending him my completion postcard and it will go on the wall.Click image for larger version.
