I sure am glad I was in a shelter last night. It rained hard. I was up by 5:30 again. That’s my usual wake up time. It gives me time to cook oatmeal and pack. I’m usually waiting for the sun to rise so I can start hiking.
Tomorrow I will climb Clingman’s Dome, the highest elevation on the Appalachian Trail. Hopefully it won’t be foggy.
Also tomorrow one of my previous coworkers friends is picking me up to go to town, resupply, shower and do laundry.
