Got up around 7:30am and was on the trail to Hot Springs, NC by 8:00am.
Made it to Hot Springs by 11:30am. I think it was around 10 miles from the old roadbed where we camped last night.
I visited my brother Anthony when he was attempting his thru-hike in 2011. It was from what I remembered and pretty small but fun place.
When I made it to town I saw a bunch if the Goat Herd at the Smoky Mountain Diner. The AT goes right down Main Street and this is the first restaurant you go by. I dropped everything and was lucky enough to catch them right after they had ordered. I ate a 12oz cheeseburger with fries and a Mountain Dew. It was delicious.
Me and a bunch of the Goat Herd rented a nice cabin by the river and hung out the rest of the day and night.
Taking a zero day tomorrow to relax and resupply.
