Tell me again…why were we walking 7 plus miles in a monsoon? I can guarantee you that I wouldn’t be this wet sitting at home watching TV. Oh, but the stories you will have.

Debra and I were recently invited by her brother, John to join him on a two-day hike on the Appalachian (Appa-latch-uhn) Trail. He has been doing segments of the trail. On this trip, he would be making his way from Unicoi Gap to Dick’s Creek Gap between Helen and Hiawassee in Georgia. This 15.8-mile hike winding through the mountains of North Georgia is listed as moderately strenuous. It is one of the early sections of the 2000+ mile journey from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine.
