He has completed 137 miles to Nantahala outdoor center in NC.  He is doing well but has some blisters on his feet.  He took today off to rest up and tend to his feet.  He ran into some "trail magic" yesterday when he and another guy he met on the trail walked up to a Baptist church group who set up a lunch for hikers.  Jerry was very grateful for the salad, real food and gatorade.  He said this area church does this twice a year.
Tomorrow he heads towards the smokie mountains and will walk up about 5000 feet.
