4/14/2014 – Day 34 – Total Miles 342.0
We rolled into Erwin this afternoon in lite rain. TRW (thunderstorms and rain showers) and snow forecast for tomorrow so we will ride 1 day out hoping to miss the snow. We have had our share of that.
Listener and I hiked together most of the day and got to know each other better. .. Great guy! It’s amazing really, the people that you meet on the trail. You get to know someone in days that normally take so much longer in everyday life.
The hike into Erwin was quite long once you could see the town, I’m guessing about 20 switchbacks and several vistas that never seemed to get me any closer.
At the hotel after my first shower in a week I noticed that I look like I just escaped a prisoner of war camp… First time I really noticed the trail is taking a toll.
