Did 16.6 miles today. Got a later start cuz I didn’t want to get out of my sleeping bag. The morning was chilly. It’s gonna be chilly again tonight. Mid thirties, maybe below freezing. I had a delicious breakfast of oatmeal and protein powder, then stopped by a creek for lunch. Been leapfrogging with some section hikers. They’re fun. Really worn out tonight. Carpenter and I are stealth camping tonight. We found an old section of the AT. Today we zigzagged across the blue ridge parkway. There are a lot of overlooks for those traveling by four wheels. The terrain was fairly flat comparatively although tomorrow we have a 2000+’ climb. Looking forward to warmer nights. Loving my new shoes, although I still roll my ankles. Oh, got trail magic today too. Someone left a bag with oreos, Cokes, hard boiled eggs and hohos. The Cokes were still cold. Awesome.
