More rain. More hikers in Nantahala Outdoor Center. More fun. More food.
Saw a few cars with backpacks waiting for somebody on parking lots. Though how lucky was these somebody to have a supporting car to carry their stuff. I would give much for supporting the car. Later I was offered to do that many times, but every time I refused. All services in the woods are killing the point of why you are there.
You at the beginning and you a month later are two different persons.
