Cherry Gap Shelter 16.9 miles
Total mileage 1830
I got up this morning and didn’t feel dread. I was ready to go this morning even though I would have to carry my full pack today. It has been close to 10 days since I carried my full pack.
I had a light breakfast, just a protein shake to start the day and didn’t have any unsettled stomach feelings. Plus throughout the day I was ready to eat.
The weather today was cool and sunny. The terrian wasn’t too bad. It was mostly dirt path with plenty of ups and downs and one or two views thrown in to keep you from getting to bored.
I am sleeping in the shelter tonight with HOOTIE and maybe one other section hiker. It is easier, takes less time and I’ve gotten lazy.
A riddle for yall…
You are standing at a river crossing with a boat and a duck, bag of grain and a wolf. You need to get all three across the river but can only take one at a time across the river in the boat. But you can’t leave the duck with the bag of grain because he will eat it and you can’t leave the duck and wolf together because the wolf would eat the duck. How do you get all three across?
Today I am thankful that the rest of my body doesn’t feel as bad as my feet!
