Pine Knob Shelter

4/27/2015 – 12.5 Miles – 22.9 Total Miles

I did 12 miles today and beat the rain to the shelter but it was full of snorers that we shared a shelter with yesterday, also a youth group so I’m in my tent listening to the rain and waiting for bears. Lots of new faces but only a couple of thru-hikers since we are pretty much ahead of them that left Georgia this year. Spring is just beginning so nights are cool to cold. There was a dusting of snow but tomorrow promises a beautiful day near 70 degrees. So far the hike is different from last year with respect to no pressure to be anywhere at a certain time… I’m on the sweet side of pain this time. It’s amazing how fast I lost the skill level I had managed last year… but in a few days I’ll be back in the routine. I go into town in a couple of days for my first food drop and a badly needed shower!!! Yahooooo… I smell like a hiker. The picture is of the first Washington Monument… how many of you knew there were two?!

    Glad to see you back in action! Nice picture of the monument. I didn’t know a second one existed.

    An Irish Prayer
    May God give you…
    For every storm, a rainbow,
    For every tear, a smile,
    For every care, a promise,
    And a blessing in each trial.
    For every problem life sends,
    A faithful friend to share,
    For every sigh, a sweet song,
    And an answer for each prayer.
