April 22: We hiked 5 miles down from a very wet and cold mountain to Newfound Gap where we encountered tourists and trail magic baptists bearing Mountain Dew and pop tarts. God bless them baptists. Pictured is the Czech dude with the pickup who shuttled us into Gatlinburg. My friend Ben gray surprised us with an appearance after we got into town for resupply. He intends to hike with us if the weather breaks. It looks like it’s going to storm like hell all day tomorrow. We may have to take a zero day tomorrow til the weather clears. Pizza and steak has given us our strength back should the weather clear. Otherwise it’s indoor go-cart racing tomorrow. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I’m pretty bad-ass in the turns. Good night and happy trails.
