Week three is starting out slow. We are in Franklin, NC. Still waiting for Stella's package. We shipped some stuff home that we are not using, chatted with the grandkids, Katie’s class, and tried our first live chat. I think it went pretty well. We have done a good job at tried the local beer and food. We have both eaten to much and gotten belly aches. Amazing how quickly the trail has affected us. We are itching to get back onto the trail.
The start up the trail was slow. We had to wait for the controlled burns to finish. That day we were able to hike about 6.5 miles to get to camp.
\\n\\nFrom there we have a lot of ups and down. Not only the mountains, which have been very steep, but also our attitudes and the weather.
This week has been alot of challenges. I have certainly thought about quitting more than once. Thank goodness everyone is cheering on!
