April 29: We are rested up, resupplied, and ready to hike 75 miles to Irwin nc. I’m glad that I didn’t join Two Chairs, Radio, Big Country, and crew on their afternoon swim in the river. They got caught on a railroad trestle with a freight train bearing down on them in true “Stand by Me” fashion. Three of them made it, three had to hang over the edge and Radio busted his leg up jumping off. He is stepping off the trail until his leg heals.

I really needed the zero. I have what I fear is a heel spur developing. Hopefully it will improve and not get worse. We are going to do 12 miles tomorrow and four sixteens to make Irwin in five days. Pictured is one last shot of the smokies. Happy trails.
