Arrival at Bull Gap
We finally arrive at Bull Gap around 7:30 p.m. It is a nice open level spot that has plenty of room to set up our tents. There is a stream down the hill where we can get more water and a fire pit that others have used where we can finally make a campfire for the night. We see a few more hikers pass through on the trail before one of them decides that he will stay at Bull Gap too. He says his name is Brandon (no trail name yet), but in my mind I refer to him as "Bear Option #3". Grayson and I are glad to have him join us for the night. Brandon is only about 23 years old, but he seems very well traveled. I later decide that I have a trail name for him... Rolling Stone. Since he gets around a lot I think that name fits him perfectly. To my surprise he loves it and so I get credit for giving him his official trail name. Heck, I don't even have one yet.
