Got up at Cabin in the Woods at 7:00am and took a hot shower! Went to eat breakfast at 8:00am. Had biscuits and gravy, eggs, pancakes, a bagel with cream cheese, and BACON. Can’t say enough good things about this place. Awesome people.
Resupplied at Fontana Village and got taken back to Stecoah Gap to start off where I stopped yesterday. Started hiking at 11:00am.
Was going to just hike 8.5 miles to Cable Gap Shelter but made really good time and got there at 2:30pm. Decided to go all the way to the Fontana Hilton. 14.9 mile day. The gateway to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.
Gus is getting picked up by the Standing Bear Shelter at 11:00am tomorrow morning. He will be taken care of by them while I hike the Smokies.
Hanging out by the fire for the evening. Talk with you guys later.
