I reached Neel’s Gap around 1pm. It was awesome there. Did a small resupply on my food. Had a pizza and some nice talkings to other hikers. Actually there is a tree with many many shoes on it. Some of the hikers who already gave up at Neel’s Gap throw their shoes over the tree.
A few miles later I had my first Trail Magic. Some ladies who section hiked the AT supplied me with some hotdogs, chips and softdrinks. I really enjoyed that one. I slept at a nice small camping spot, a mile after that.
The next day definitely was the toughest one so far. I did 6 peaks this day. One of them was the highest point in Georgia. It was one hell of a climb. My knees are hurting now. I have to do another 30 miles to the next town where I definitely need a zero day.
“Some ladies…supplied me…”. “I really enjoyed that one.”
I see you will not come back again 😉
Awesome pictures, enjoy it 🙂
Hi Bernie, just saw your latest Insta-Pic. I just hope your Sawyer Filter was inside your sleeping bag, when the water was freezing 🙂 Cheers and save hiking!
I had the filter inside my sleeping bag all the time. Even while hiking ?
