The day started as it usually does, with me waking up just before my alarm goes off. Forcing myself to get out of my warm sleeping bag, and then packing up everything as quickly and quietly as possible. Luckily for me this morning, there was a bunch of other people in the shelter who were getting up about the same time as I was.
It did not rain at all today, which was nice. I passed a couple groups of day hikers. But largely, the day was quiet and uneventful. The sun was shining and it was not cloudy at all.
When I arrived at Davenport Gap Shelter, it was only 3:30 in the afternoon. I hung out with a guy named GPS. Matt and Neo were also there from the last shelter. Also staying there was the guitar player that I ran into at the Top of Geogia Hostel. I keep hoping to run into Cheif again but no one I have talked to has seen him lately.
I finished my day the same way pretty much I do every day, sitting either in or next to my sleeping bag, typing up the blog to send the next day when I get good enough signal. Looking back on today, I realized there is not much to share as it was straight forward. I woke up and hiked, saw some amazing sights, made dinner, talked to some interesting people, and went to bed. The routine of the Appalachian Trail.
