April 20

Day 21 Hot Springs, NC Zero Day

A day of rest is a good thing. Lolled around most of AM. Chalet would be perfect if had TV and was not a half mile walk to town.

Below is a hiker room when they come in from hiking in rain and need to dry stuff out.

Nice, peaceful setting from the deck of chalet. Truthfully, I’d exchange view for ESPN and CNBC!


Tiny house…big grill.

This is Alex (“Big Foot”). He is the U of NH guy I met day 1 and have seen a few other times. I hadn’t seen him for more than a week and assumed he was far ahead of me. He hiked through Smokies with brother so slowed him down. He is quite surprised some “old guy” is keeping pace. Tortoise and the hare!


Ready to hit it in the AM. Next destination is Erwin, TN (about 70 miles).

Happy trails!

    The hare’s looking good with that beard! Stay tough, enjoy the company and bud! Keeping good thoughts through next 70….

    Love reading about the journey. Looking forward to next blog.
