Journals From A 2003 Thru-Hike of the Appalachian Trail (by Loony)

Entry #46 – May 10, 2003

9:15 PM – Pretty boring hike today. Felt really tired for whatever reason. Made it to Iron Mtn Shelter around 5:00. Quite a few here, including Mellow Yellow & Jane (who is now Blink Blink). M.Y. had shin splints, or was starting to get them, so they took a few days off awhile back.

Had a fire & toasted the marshmallows we got back at Laurel Creek Hostel. Some will be doing the 26 miles into Damascus tomorrow. We had planned on just 15 or so, and then heading in the next day, but we’ll see how it goes.
