Day 22 Icewater Springs Shelter to Tri-Corner Knob Shelter

Wednesday, May 04, 2016; AT Mile 222.2
Walked from 208.3 to 220.5 plus 0.80 adjustment or 13.0 miles.
Started 06:50 AM, stopped 04:20 PM.
Ave mph was 1.37, excluding lunch.
Battery used:  8 percent
Today was almost worse than yesterday. Until about 1200 there was a tremendous cold wind blowing and fog. And I mean cold. I wore my wool shirt, my wind shirt, my rain jacket and pants (plus regular pants), my gloves, hat and I put the two hoods up. About 3:00 PM I took off the gloves. 

People are saying snow or sleet tonight. Good test of tent and clothes/quilt combo. 

Pretty nice views after fog and wind left. Trail was rocky, rooty, and muddy and just up and down. 

I had to take a 0.8 mile side trail at noon to use a privy. Just no off trail areas. Plus a horde of never ending day hikers kept passing.

Have a good night!
