Day 9

After a dry night in town with everyone, I started back at Rock Gap with Dingo and Trauma Kit. Trauma Kit has to go home tomorrow, so I’m taking a short easy day to stay with them tonight. Siler Bald was very cool, way nicer than the balds in the Smokies! Met Ryan there and we kept pace together for a few miles before breaking off. Going to camp at Wine Spring tonight and hopefully make it to A Rufus Morgan Shelter tomorrow, about 17 miles away. At this rate, I’ll be at Fontana Saturday to see my husband :) We had an awesome last night with Trauma Kit and I’ll definitely miss him out here. We had a great fire for a few hours and took some silly photos. Another great day on the AT!
