I’m now reading reports of hikers moving north from the start of the AT this season, and it’s got me homesick bad for The Trail. One of the things I do now is to get on the internet and go back to my Trailjournals to revisit where I was on a particular date, like today. The post from April 10, 2007 was just before I entered the 70 mile slog way up into the Smokies. I hiked 162 miles in exactly two weeks, reaching Fontana Dam, gateway to North Carolina’s Great Smoky National Park.
