4/9/18 Day 260 AT Day 20: Into Hot Springs, NC

April 25, 2018


Miles: 9.6
Steps: 26,520
Elevation Gain: 1,389 feet
Faith in Humanity: Thanks to Elmer at Sunnybank Inn for providing such an amazing stay for such a good price!

Still raining a bit on wake up.  Got out of the tent, packed up a ton of wet items and hit the trail.  Town today!!! Yay!

The 10 miles seemed to drag a little, bit it was drizzling for quite a bit of them so I suppose that’s why.  Upon arrival in town I was looking for my hiking friend and wasn’t sure if they were ahead or behind.  I went to the grocery store to buy fold to make it to the next town.  Met up with my friend immediately afterwards, nice!

Checked in at the Sunnybank Inn which I had really fond memories from my previous hike.  Oldest house in the town, and for $25 you effectively get your own rom with shared bathrooms which is awesome!  For $12 more you get an incredible dinner!  Soup, amazing and huge salad, main course of this spinach and bread combination thing and lime pie for dessert!  What a great deal, thank you!

Also took care of other town errands, like laundry, going to the outfitter to buy a couple pieces of gear, buying a bit more food, etc.  Also nice to dry out some gear and do some organizing.  Hung out for a bit but really ended up going to bed fairly early.
