I spent today at the Top Of Georgia Hostel. I took a short tour of Hiawassee and did some shopping for essentials (snacks!) I had another giant hamburger at a place called Daniels. It is a family owned steakhouse and buffet. It was excellent and the service was also good. There is something about BIG Georgia hamburgers!
The storm blew through with a fury and I am thankful to be inside tonight. I plan to make a little better time on the trail tomorrow. It should not be too difficult because I have gotten plenty of rest the last day and a half. I really appreciated the inspiring words from several of you who are following this blog. Thank you for that and your prayers. I shall hike another day.
Goodnight from mile marker 69.9,
