Day 1 – Springer Mountain to Hawk Mountain shelter 9.0 miles
What a day! It’s near 5pm and I’m laying in my tent. I’m pooped.
I’m so out of shape lol.
It was a beautiful day – mid 60s and blue sky. Trail was up and down, rocks, roots and mud. But I made it. Barely.
Met a lot of great people along the way. Spent the last hour hiking with a couple from Washington State.
Doubt I’ll push myself tomorrow as hard. Next shelter is over six miles and no water in between. That means I had to fill up at a stream and will have to carry extra water tomorrow. I’m carrying 3 litres, or about six pounds. Ugh!
Anyways, I’m doing well.
Camp area I’m at has at least another 20 campers.
That’s it for now, soon it’ll be dinner time, then I’ll roll out my muscles and hit the sack.
