    I'm now in Hot Spings, NC just north of Great Smoky Mountain National Park. It's been raining the past few days but I've managed to stay dry. The Smokys were awesome, great terrain and views.

    We did a 26 mile day Sunday, with 23 of those miles after 3:00 PM due to some trail magic. This guy was set up at a road with tons of food and we stayed for hours eating as much as possible. Got into town at 1:45 AM and set up in the rain. Spent tons of money in this town so far, 8 hours at the bar draining pitchers yeaterday. Headed back to the trail tomorrow, having a great time.

    AT...

    Sounds great SB...just $.01 worth to keep in mind...try to make it up to Katahdin before October. Weather conditions can often be pretty cold in October up here...even before you start climbing....then add in the difference in temps & windchill with elevation.
    Hope everything goes well.......

    $.01

    I am now in Glasgow, VA, about 800 miles into the trip, heading into Shenandoah in a few days. It's been crazy hot lately, taking it easy.

    Good job! Keep it up, but try to stay cool, I know that's gotta be hard, especially where you are now. Right know up in NH, this weekend has been hot and is supposed to stay that way for a few days, but it's NE give it a few days, that'll change.
