Uncle Tom’s 2007 Appalachian Trail Journal- April 10

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.

Lifetraveler, packing heavy. We finished together on April 15. LT worked a minimum wage job for a few years to save $$$ to do this hike.
