AT – GA Day 13 Plumorchard to Muskrat Shelter 6/12/13

Muskrat shelter, staying in shelter


Hey ho I am in NC now!!!  How exciting to cross the state line and see the famous tree!  So cool!  I hiked the GA AT.  I ROCK!! and the best thing is I FEEL GREAT!  I could keep going if I got a shower tomorrow 🙂  I have really really enjoyed this trip!

Last night Lumberjack, Tootsie roll and the dog, Reverend came crashing into Plumorchard after dark.  Then they made a lot of noise, made a fire, and drank beer and talked.  ARGH…kept me up!

Anyway, the hills after the famous tree in NC are CRAZY.  Slow going but I did it!  This shelter in NC is dark and dank and trashy.  The creek is nice and I saw a lot of cool salamanders? skinks?

Hanging out my stuff to dry…again.

There is this old plane wreckage here at the shelter.  Supposedly from a drug running plane that went down in the mountains.  I took a picture for Logan.  And wouldn’t you know it…there is a pilot at the shelter tonight!  Everyone is now showing up.  Lucky we got here early and claimed a spot because…yep, you guessed it…rain!

I am already thinking about hikes I want to do when I get home.  I might do that 13 miler from Keys Gap to Snickers Gap in VA.  Of course I will take Pauli!!

I have heard a lot about dehydrating food on this trip.  Seems like quite a production…but may be worth it.  Google dehydrated pumpkin pie!

The trail north of here is swamped with water.  Only 4 miles to Deep Gap, NC tomorrow.  Looking forward to a shower, then getting back to Einstein, Moose, Elvis, Jett, Pauli and most importantly Little Caesar!
