North Carolina

Last Saturday we crossed the border from Georgia into North Carolina. One state done, 13 more to go.

So far, I’m not so impressed with the shelters in area, they are smaller and less clean.  The privy’s are also smaller and less clean.  So far none of the shelter areas have had bear cables for our food. We know how to hang a bear bag–Charlie taught us well, but it is so much easier with bear cables.

We also noticed that there hasn’t been much trail magic–reading all the books made it sound as if was around every corner. The other thing is that it was really hard to get a hitch out of Franklin the other day. I guess every state will be different.

    When I was a kid my grandparents lived on the border of the Bronx and Mt. Vernon. I would get a kick out of the fact that if I put my hand over the wall of the yard I could be in 2 places at once…. well that is the closest I’ve ever come to walking from one state to another and they are not even different states! So….congratulations!!!!!!
