To Wesser Bald… Snow

Posted by on March 26, 2014

3/25/2014 – Total Miles 131.4

Well, I woke up to a good snow on the ground, about 3 to 4 in. We hiked all day in the snow and now tucked in the Wesser Bald shelter with 7 hikers… like sardines, 5 would be snug. Myself (Tank), Frankie the sleeper, Jess, Ace (ace), Whisperer, FireWalker, and Mac. All awesome hikers and good people, very kind.

Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) tomorrow for a day out of this cold. The snow has all my clothes damp and it is hard to get  warm. Here is a couple pics for the day… I’m so cold I can’t text anymore.

    Howdy. My name is Diana. I am friends with Brian & Carley and Carley’s parents. This last picture sends chills through my bones. I am sitting in my office. It is 73 in here and I’m chilled. Ha! I’m a little whimpy too. Your blog has been interesting to follow. I will stay tuned and I will also keep you and your friends in my prayers.

    I’d feel a lot more compassion for you if those two would at least pretend to be miserable.

    Chris is just trying to make it appear tough…he actually has no pants on.
