Went to bed last night with clear skies and nice temps. Woke up to rain and cool temps. That won’t stop the 4 of us.
Bruce will be hiking the approach trail today. It is an 8.9 mile hike up to the southern terminus of the A.T. Which is Springer Mountain. We will camp out at a shelter or tent site then in the morning head north. About 1 mile into the hike Bruce will be picked up by our friend Jimmy who was part of yesterday’s welcome committee. We will say our goodbyes and Jimmy will take Bruce back down to our car. Someone has to go to work. Might as well be him and not me. He is so much better at it then I am.
