A few have asked about the “we”. There is another hiker, Josh, who I have been hiking with the past few days. A few days ago he would pass me, I would pass him then we decided to hike together. Josh’s last day was today, he heads back to Atlanta.
We hitched into Franklin, NC yesterday. I couldn’t wait any longer for trainers to be shipped so I bought a pair. Camped last night near the Bartram Trail, elevation 5,200′. About 120 miles from the start. Averaging 17 miles a day. A little less than I thought. Food is mostly oatmeal, granola, kinda tree-hugger food.
Please look for that loose change around your car and home. Wounded Warrior Project will put it to good use!
Warning – toe pics are gross!!! Looks worse than it is. Feels much better with the trainers. When it heals I hope increase miles.
