I’m at the library in Hiawassee, GA. Staying at the Blueberry Patch Hostel this evening. They are very kind people, got me a bottom bunk, a shower, and they’re doing my laundry. They also gave me a ride into town where I can get some decent phone service and internet. Planned on getting here last night, but Kelly Knob was longer than I thought, so came in first thing this morning. It’s interesting the things the mind does when hiking, yesterday as I was going uphill, I was counting steps until the next root I could stand on to rest. I miss my friends terribly. Now that I have service I’ve been reading everyone’s comments on the blog, thank you everyone for your support. Had to buy some Deet today, the bugs have been ferocious because of the warm winter. Hiawassee is a cute little town that caters to hikers and tourists to Lake Chatuge. They have a $2.00 store where I got a sexy pair of new sunglasses. I plan on entering into North Carolina on Saturday, I’ll try to get a picture of me at the GA/NC sign. If you’re so inclined, please donate to Flagstaff Shelter services and save a life.
