Finally, Douche over his fascination of snakes,
A much more fearsome opponent was at hand, closer to the bike
Then we rolled back to camp. It was pretty cool camping. We were across from the AT and a couple of young men were hiking it and stayed w/ us. They un-impressedly watched me cook hamburger patties with blue cheese in aluminum foil on stones in the fire. Being from the north, they were quite fascinated by southerners ease of gun-handling and carrying. I was surprised, 2 guys from the north, never backpacked, never hiked intensely just one day decided; let's do this; hike the AT.
Very awesome guys. Hope they made it all the way.
The next morning;
Beautiful balds and beautiful mountains..... I love the south......
