Everything is covered in snow. I’m going to try and see if I can get a pickup at Deep Gap, which is 6 miles ahead, rather than Rock Gap, which is 27.
So, I found a shuttle driver that would do a pickup at the road near Bly Gap (there was a side trail leading down, and a forest service road after), so me and two others who were camping at the Gap got a ride into town. There was another guy, but he didn’t keep up, so the driver is going back to check on him and take him to Hiawassee.
I’m currently sitting in a Knights Inn out here and I’m going to try to figure things out. I might come back and muse some more here.
- I only walked about five miles and it hurts to put weight on my feet.
- I have bruises on my hips and arms from my pack.
- My vision issue is still there.
Meh. I’m going to take a nap and come back later.
