Made it through my first state! Georgia is all done. All 84.1 miles of it plus the 8.8 miles of the approach trail! Now for North Carolina!
Got up a little late today. Around 8:30am. Packed up and ate breakfast. Then chatted with some people at the shelter. We left together at around 10:00am. I left them behind around 10:15am. They were older and I didn’t see then again until the Muskrat Gap Shelter.
I made it the 4.4 miles from the shelter to the GA/NC border sign at around noon. Me and Gus took a break and ate some lunch. I made some phone calls and Gus ate sticks. Pretty usual for Gus whenever we are not hiking. 🙂
I made it to the Muskrat Gap Shelter at 2:00pm after climbing some pretty steep mountains with no views. No views seems to be the trend in the southern Appalachians.
I set up my tent and just lazed around until 5:00pm when I made dinner. Macaroni and Cheese! It was pretty good.
Got into my tent around 7:00pm after hanging my bear bag, filling up and filtering water, and talking with some people at the shelter.
Found out I have a hole somewhere in my sleeping pad that deflates it very slowly. Can’t find it. Will fix it in a couple days when I am in town. That’s all for today.
