Today I'm taking a day to relax. Had a very short hike to stay at a hostel ‎just off the trail outside Hiawasee, GA. I'm at mile 66 or so, making great progress. Today is a day to get a resupply package from home, take a shower (!), do laundry, and generally recover.


I'm not hiking alone - have met hikers from Japan, South Africa, Australia, England, and other countries. People are friendly and exchanging stories help the miles pass.


Weather has been good, with quite a storm last night - which is why I was in a shelter instead of my tent. After 2 cold nights and windy days, yesterday hit 80!


Tomorrow I may leave Georgia behind. So far, so good. More later when signals and service permit.
