Thursday September 21, 2017 Flint Mountain Shelter 18.9 miles Total mileage 1882.8 Got some great news tonight after a hard day. Jim may be coming up again while I am in the Smokies so I won’t have to carry five days of food and I will get to see him again! Whoo who! That makes my heart swell! 😊 I woke up late this morning! Can you believe it? I do have to admit yesterday was a hard day. HOOTIE didn’t want to leave until 8 am. So I set my alarm for 7 am and I slept right through it. I have been setting an alarm so each time I wake up I don’t and keep checking my watch to see if it is time to get up. I just lay there all snuggled up until it goes off.
