Uncle Johnny’s

Staying at Uncle Johnny’s hostel on the Nolichucky River near Erwin tonight:


Rented a bike for $2 and rode into town to do laundry and resupply with food. When we got back we met Chris West who was on the AT as part of a walk across the country from Newport, NC to Newport, OR. You can check out his story at odysseywest.us. He brought some food to the hostel for the thru hikers

Anybody know this flower?

      I knew I could count on Paula. Those “gay wings” are all over this part of Tennessee and really beautiful

    Wait – 40 cent snickers? Wow – fantastic price! Would you mind picking up a gross of those? Be sure to keep them cool – we can make the transfer down the trail a couple hundred miles or so. That’d be great!
