Day 6 Stealth Site to Trey Mountain

Monday, April 18, 2016, AT Mile 58.1
Walked from 51.5 to 64.0 or 12.5 miles.
Started 07:03 AM, stopped 05:42 PM.
Ave mph was 1.17, excluding lunch.
Battery used:  4 percent
It was a tough day. Two big ups. Hot and sunny. I'm on the top of Trey Mountain at a nice camp site. I didn't want to go the extra half mile down to the shelter to find either no free sites or sites that sloped. 

Passed Vino and Marty right after I started this morning. Vino was the lady with no water. Marty's probably up at the shelter. Dregs and Melissa passed me a couple of times. They are fast. There were a few I passed including Bear. He was BIG. He had on military boots because he couldn't find any hiking boots big enough. He carried a big pack and moved slow. 

At Unicoi Gap we got trail magic from a church group. I had Powerade, a hamburger and a hot dog. They were a great group and friendly!  Best lunch I've had on the trail.   Chef, Frisky and a young lady who didn't give her name passed me coming up Trey Mountain. 

Supper was good and the view is great. I even got to call Susan. Seems to be raining cats and dogs in San Antonio. Have a great night!
