150.4 Miles to go!

Monday October 2, 2017

Stecoah Gap, NC 14 miles

Total mileage 2039.3

Wow, did I sleep good last night on a queen size bed with 4 fluffy pillows! This was my view before going to bed last night.

I had a good day. I like the shorter miles. It’s much easier on the body. I kept my thoughts positive trying not to think about my feet.

The weather was amazing for hiking. It was cool and sunny. The last three days have been like this. Hopefully it will continue.

There weren’t to many exciting parts of the trail. There was an awesome view of Fontana lake but that was it. There were more up and downs than I thought there would be and a steep downhill down Jacob’s ladder. My knees have started to bother me some like they did up north with the steeper terrian. I am down to 150.4 miles to go the end is in sight.

I am staying at Stecoah Wolf Creek Hostel run by Lonnie. All the rooms are private and I have a full size bed. This is a treat.

Today I am thankful for the beauty of the day.

  2. Good to go easy on yourself! By my calculation you’ve done more than 45,000 feet of up and/or down, that’s more than 8.5 miles of vertical since Standing Bear!
    Take care.

  3. You seem down but think of what you have accomplished. You don’t know me but I am a cust. of Jim’s. I have read all of your posts and you have been amazing. When I climb in Alaska and it gets tough I just put my head down and put one foot in front of the other. You are close and in 150 you can hold your head high and know you are something special. Gary
