Day 59

Fullhardt Knob Shelter to Bryant Ridge shelter – 27 miles
756.0 / 1429.3

Today was a big day, we were still excited about Mcafees Knob from yesterday and we decided to wake up early again and crush miles. Our original plan was to go 23, but halfway we ran into a girl chamomile who reminded us that it costs $20 to camp at Jennings Creek. Looks like were going 27! We made 13.5 miles by noon and we were exhausted, and had a big lunch. It was hot out! Hit around 81 degrees. Beautiful scenery and green trees though, important for the soul.

We had finished 23 miles when we decided to make a break for Jennings creek, it had a swimming hole. But when we got to the road we realized it had so much more. We got a hitch to it and they had almost a full menu of everything a hiker could ask for. Sodas, milkshakes, ice cream, bacon cheeseburgers, bacon, bacon, bacon. Bacon! Best part was, they had an arcade.. I ate a bacon cheeseburger, chicken nuggets, a chicken sandwich and 2 sodas and a pineapple juice. So good! She shuttled us back to the trail and here we are at the shelter, full and happy.
