>AT Update #2: Headed to Neels

Post to Twitter

>Well, we had a beautiful sunrise this morning and broke camp 10 to 9. We only made it less than 1/4 mile before we hooked up with the AT again at the crossroads of the Byron Reese Trail. I looked up the AT towards Blood Mtn and saw one of our guys coming down. He’d left early to try and catch us.

We’ve been waiting close to any hour for the rest of the gang. Hopefully they’ll be along shortly since we have a good 10-11 miles ahead of us and I sure don’t want to be hiking in the dark.

Since it was obviously going to take a while for the others to arrive we decided to break out some coffee and D hadn’t had breakfast yet since he left so early.

Once the next two guys showed up we took off. However, two of the guys went down the Byron Reece trail to the parking lot and the other three of us headed down the AT to Neels and Walasi-Yi.

M & T both had to leave today so after picking up the vehicle at the parking lot they met us at Neels where we said goodbye. We waited 2 more hours for the remainder of our group to arrive and everybody ate lunch. The store at Neels is pretty cool but I refrained from buying anything I’d have to carry. 🙂
