3/26/98 Icewater Spring Shelter

3.0 miles (206.6 total)

What a beautiful day! Pufferbelly taught me the finer points of hitch-hiking. We were able to get a ride in less than ten minutes. The sun is just beaming. Decided to NOT do a ten miler, just three. And who should show up at Newfound Gap but Suzanne, Mighty Wind & Ol’Crawdad. Didn’t sleep much last night so I’ve been taking a cat-nap in the sun. Weather Carrot is here, plus a bunch of weekend hikers. The shelter will probably be full tonight, but the night should be clear and there are tent sites if needed.
