Woke up at 3:00am in the morning and didn’t feel very well. Upset stomach. Tossed and turned for about an hour. Finally got out of my tent and threw up. Right then I knew I got the norovirus that has been going around. Felt better after that and was able to sleep until around 7:30am.
Got my stuff together and got ready to leave with Mellow Jonny. He gave me an Ermergen-C drink mix and said it may make me feel better. I finished it and threw up again. So much for that.
We left Hogback Ridge Shelter around 10:00am. I decide to get off the trail at Sam’s Gap. Another 2.4 miles down the trail. It was horrible with the way I was feeling.
Got there about and hour later and another hiker was there that was sick also. He had already called Miss Janet for a shuttle and she was on her way. Mellow Jonny started to feel sick to and decided to join us.
Another hiker from the Goat Herd, Han Solo, also met us at Sam’s Gap not feeling well either. His story was hilarious and disgusting and not something I will share in this post.
We finally made it to the Best Southern Motel in Erwin, TN. Miss Janet bought us Gatorade, Apple Sauce, Yogurt, and Bananas. Awesome lady. Thank You!
Me, Solo, and Gus shared a room and slept the rest of the day. Hopefully tomorrow we will be feeling better.
