Day 30: No Business Knob Shelter to Erwin, TN

Today’s mileage: 5.8
Total mileage: 341.5

Nothing too exciting to report down here in Erwin, TN. We hiked into town by noon and checked into a hotel away from all of the sick hikers. We are still healthy and hoping it stays that way! We ran into a few people we knew at the hostel that were sick. We said hi and talked for a bit, but then moved on to distance ourselves from the germs.

We had a typical day in town: laundry, resupply, pizza delivery, shower, and lots of relaxing. We watched a lot of movies, or parts of movies at least, on TV as hung out and put up our feet for the day. Ahhhh, nothing like watching tons of rom-coms and eating Cheetos in bed.

We are doing more of the same tonight. I’m icing my knees and watching V for Vendetta. We should be in Virginia in a week!!!

I apologize for my brief post tonight, but there really wasn’t anything that happened today that was too exciting. Just your typical nero day and I’m beat. I’m so ready for a good night’s sleep after some big hiking days behind us and more to come.

  1. Rest well. BHS yardsale today. Lots of stuff from this house. Rest and good nutrition along with the hand sanitizer will do wonders to keep you on the healthier side of life. Good luch helps too though. I so look forward to your blogs in night or two ( usually when I’m staying by the kids’ door after they’ve gone to bed).
