Spent another day in Gatlinburg because it’s been pouring rain all day. Took Sheila’s advice and went to grocery store for snacks. Loaded up on dried fruit, nuts, and jerky. Hitting the trail again tomorrow morning and heading to Hot Springs, NC. Should be there in about 5 days. I am thankful every day for the generosity and kindness of the people in my life. It is good to love and be loved.
