A big thanks to First Bapst Church

Just enjoyed about a half pound of bacon, 2 grande hot chocolates with cream and OJ to filly tummy. I am ready to hit the trail again after yesterday’s zero day. 

First baptist church of Franklin, NC provides a hiker all you can eat pancake breakfast for free. I fueled up on the bacon since gluten doesn’t agree with me. It is an awesome ministry they provide. Complete with a reading from scripture, the best part. 

Gotta run now ya’ll (as they say down here).  The trail calls. Not sure when I will be back in touch. Hope to hit the NOC in three days and meet up with my sister and brother in law. Can’t wait. 

Happy Hiking
