What a fun day, even though it was a full 15 miles, there was a lot to be done. Today we hit Clingmans Dome - the highest part on the trail. Got a few questions from dayhihers and spring breakers. We were quite the oddity, it was a novel experience.
I sat and ate lunch and managed to get a phone call out to my friend Amanda. Long lunch, around one hour.
Found out that there is indeed a Golden Coral in Pigeon Forge, which is acceptable because a trolley will get us there. That poor buffet will have no idea what hit it.
When hanging our food bags I managed to clip the caribeener around the wire, meant to hang the food so it got stuck halfway up and I had to put Indy on my shoulders to get it down, success at last.
Tomorrow is only 4 miles to Newfound Gap where I'll be trying hitchhiking again, we'll see how it goes this time.
We also hit the 200 mile mark today, making progress!
