Yowzer! The AT is only a week away. My hammock should arrive in Colorado for repairs today. I’m guessing I’ll have to overnight it back or have it sent down the trail; time is very short. I’ll just have to spend my first night on the ground or in a shelter.
The long term weather forecast looks OK; some rain with moderate temperatures.
The rain is absolutely no problem; that means water and that’s fantastic.
I also mailed a food supply ahead to 4 Pines Hostel; my first resupply. I called yesterday to make sure it was OK and the response I got was, “Sure brother, we’re looking forward to seeing you!”
