Day 44: Slack Pack SOBO

Rate this Entry
To test out Not Sureís foot we slack packed ~9 miles from Indian Grave Gap back to Erwin. It was nice to go SOBO. One, because it was downhill. Knees were KT taped and held up well. Two, we got to see a lot more hikers. We counted 65+ thru hikers which is crazy. Going into town and the weather creates a bubble, but itís far more than I thought. Saw some hikers I hadnít seen in awhile. Beast, Tennessee, Lost and Found, Drizzle. It was nice to catch up. Made it back into Erwin just in time to miss the afternoon showers. The slack packing and zeros have been nice, but Iím ready to move on and keep heading NOBO.
