So bigger thoughts after some sleep tonight. My first night sleeping in a shelter was NOT good. It was warm and dry and the company was good but sleep was hard to come by. I got bits but would wake up and have to change position, not comfortable at all. Of course this is why I camp in a hammock, I dont like sleeping on the ground.
Tonight I’m in a hotel in Helen, GA a German alpine village in rural Georgia. Taking an earlier than planned zero day, I’ll swap it out with a planned day in Hiawassee. Going to try and miss a bad rain day tomorrow.
The trail has been hard and amazing, I’ve met some great folks. Each day seems to be composed of multiple days. Part idealic hiking day, part rainy nightmare, part blissful trail. The balance though is definitely falling on the positive side.
So goodnight my friends and have a happy day – Rev Kane
