Holed up in Hiawassee
Yikes! Hiawassee is having about the same weather as NH this week in terms of temps. I decided to stay until Monday to avoid the huge rain and snow in the mountains on the way. It is five days at least to Franklin, NC, and I didn’t want to be caught in sub freezing temps with two days to get to civilization.
OTOH, the Budget Hotel is, well, budget. They do provide shampoo and soap, as well as laundry for hikers, but the linens are old, thin and tired. No blankets on the bed, and the room is either freezing or HOT. My room mate called her son to drive four hours to pick her up instead of being stuck here for the weekend. So for the moment, I am alone.
Going to finally mail my “bounce box” today. It hold my meds, spare soap, toothpaste, razor, etc. Somehow, it’s packed and I can’t seem to get it down to a reasonable size.
The hikers staying all agree we’re going stir crazy here, and frankly the Monday forecast is hardly spring-like, but I’m going then no matter what.
I’m ready to be done with Georgia.
