Ascent Trip ReportDAY # 31 --- ERWIN TN ---
7h30 - left after Chris - didn't see him today', he's going to miss Janet's hostel in Erwin. My left ankle felt ok, right knee still sore. I like my new backpack. Trail at High Rocks very rocky and rough, took a side trail to Temple Hill and Temple Ridge.
15h15 - arrived Nolichucky river Irwin TN and JOHNNY'S hostel, right on the AT just before the bridge, took cabin at 20$ ..... a great stopping place. I have my usual errands to do. I met Maria from Wisconsin, a Soprano fan, has been here for a few days. Overall a good day, feeling good.
I'll stay here for 2 nights, tomorrow morning I'll shuttle to Indian Grave gap and hike back (sb), 8.3m. I'll finish my errands in the PM, thereby gaining a few miles on a zero day. Called Rose, Rosaria and Michael.
Johnny (wife Charlotte) provides free shuttles, drove a group of 8 to a restaurant in town....no pasta ????
