Want to document and share your hike with friends and family?
Today was my official start. I left Springer Mtn. At 10:30 (already off my plan). It was really difficult leaving Shelley and I already miss her dearly. I met Ranger Bill and Ranger Lilly. They were fantastic and gave me good advice. Most import is listen to my body.
I made it to Hawke Mtn. Shelter and logged 11 miles, although it says only 8.1. I had to back track at Springer. It's already getting colder and I'm hunkered down in my tent for the night. I need my body to recover. The hike was tough on me, but I will embrace the suck as they say. Time to get my rest... Signing off
