Next was Doll Flats. Here I left North Carolina for good. The trail has been following and going back and forth between TN and NC. I’ll be in Tennessee for two or three days and then will be in Virginia.
Engineer caught me just as we were crossing a highway and we decided to hike the quarter mile down the highway to get some supplies. They have a little general store with hiker stuff. We each bought and cooked a Tombstone Pizza and ate a pint of Ben and Jerrys. That took care of my hiker hunger. I bought a couple more dehydrated meals and was back on my way with a full belly and a smile.
One of my friends recommended I start including bits of information about my equipment. I’ve been planning to do that and will start soon.
