Day 16- Back on the Road

Day 16- Back on the Road

 

So you want to know about day sixteen?
Well we has a great nights sleep camping on the trail. We still had our walking sticks we found the day before, and they sure did come in handy when walking on the trail. After a while though, I was not liking some elements of being on the A.T. It was mostly the not knowing what was coming ahead, not being able to keep track of mileage and directions, ans the unevenness of the trail. We stopped in a meadow and made some mac and cheese for lunch. Oh, I also had a great yahtzee game and kicked Levi's butt. With the difficulty of the trail, we knew we would not make the mileage we needed too, and we agreed to head back to the road.
Wow, we were so happy to be on streets again! I didn't realize how much we were used to the road and how comfortable with it we were. We stayed in residential areas for the remainder of the day before finding a great location to set up camp. Although the Appalachian trail was a challenge, I enjoyed trying something different I also gained a great appreciation for those who do the trail start to finish-very impressive.

Hope you are enjoying the updates,
