Day 7

Did a 19.3 mile day in the tough NC mountains! Pushed it with Tye Dye so I can get a ride to Franklin in the morning. I hit the 100-mile mark at 5 pm today after climbing up Albert Mountain. It was a tough climb, but it was exhilarating! The trails today were so similar to those in the Smokies and it felt like I was at home. I really hit my stride for sure. After Hard Drive and Pappy got to camp, they send a message from Pops saying he’d come up to the shelter tonight from Betty’s Creek if Trophy Wife would come back and carry his pack. I like that I’ve got a reputation for endurance being that I’m one of the few females out here. I’m hoping to get into and out of Franklin quickly so I can keep on going!
