Today was kind of a crazy day.
I slept last night perhaps better than I have since I’ve been on the trail. I was in my tent and the temperature was perfect. Fifty degrees maybe. I didn’t have to think about mice and I was plenty tired from the days hike.
I got up around 5:45am and began my morning routine of packing. The only thing I didn’t do was cook some oatmeal. I knew that I would be going through my first trail town on the AT. We come close to a lot of towns but don’t actually go right through very many. I wanted town food for breakfast.
Deb and I were on the trail by 7:15am. We were in town by 9:00ish. I had a sausage and cheese omelette with hash browns and a side of bacon. And lots of coffee. OMG. Good. I was in heaven.
Then Deb and I went to the outfitters store. I bought a few supplies and she bought a new pair of hiking shoes.
We heard bad things about the weather so we went back to the cafe we had breakfast at and hung out on the porch of the restaurant. Then the rain came.
It poured. We sat there with our phones pulling up the weather and it’s supposed to get worse. Storms with high winds.
Later this week it sounds like we could get snow. I’m glad I haven’t sent my cold weather stuff home.
I miss Amy and Ryan. I never knew a motel room could be so lonely.
Tomorrow the weather is supposed to be good. But later this week is questionable.
