Day 1

Day 1 Morning thru hiker class at the Visitor Center covering necessary things like hygiene, proper use of bear bags and pooping in cat holes. I passed. Started Springer Mt at 11 am. Rain started by 2:30 walked for two hours in the rain and set up camp in the rain. “Some people feel the rain and others just get wet” Bob Marley. Thor made an impressive run at us all night.

Also of note, we have raised over $1,200 thus far for GRRMF! Thanks for all who have donated!
