North Carolina coming right up

It looks as though I’ll cross the NC border day after tomorrow. About 10 more mile to go, but I have to go to town tomorrow for some food, then it’s about 4.5 mile to the shelter. It is truly amazing to go downhill from the trail/road junctions another 12 – 14 miles to a town. Most of the trail here runs between 2800 – 4000 + elevation, with the most common hiking elevations in the 3000 – 4000 range. I’ve done two 4000 footers, and missed the third at Blood Mt.

I’m very worried about several days of rain coming and hypothermia. It’s about 7 days to the next road crossing, so I have to tough it out. Will likely not have great cell coverage during the rain. Plan to stay at shelters as much as possible.

  1. Be careful! Love you!

  2. hi Paula! I’m a friend of Zoe’s, have been enjoying this blog, especially the peeing with a view comment. Think you’re wise to avoid the bad weather, sorry the hotel has lousy cable…see if there’s anyplace you can rent a DVD player and DVD’s and watch them, no need to hook to a tv, just put on your chest, I have no cable in El Paso (trying to save money) and that’s what I do. Maybe the library? GOod luck!
