4 August 2007 in Hot Springs, NC. I'm at Bluff Mountain Outfitters in Hot Springs, NC after the first 30+ miles of the Appalachian Trail. I'm keeping a journal which I plan to transcribe into this blog, but don't want to hog the computer here. They graciously allow hiking visitors to use it for the internet.
So far on the trail I've seen lots of varieties, colors, ahd shapes of mushrooms. Water hasn't been as robustly available as I expected. My body is doing well so far. Ditto footwear & pack. I'm pleased.
Another blog! The WhereIsRonNow.blogspot.com has gotten full of travelogue information, so this blog became necessary. Unfortunately my camera was "lost" in the bottom of the saddlebags, so until somebody sends me pictures, I cannot post any.
