Now What?

Our new friend, Rolling Stone, was going to hike 1 mile back to Mountain Crossings and restock up on food supplies before moving on for the day.  We probably would have done the same thing if we didn't have Grayson's food bag to share.  Having just lost all of my food to a bear, I suddenly had a great idea... we will hike 19 miles all the way to Unicoi Gap, get in my car and drive to Helen for the night, thus taking another bear attack out of the equation.  It would be a very tough hike but the thought of having a nice bed to sleep in and a nice dinner in town was very motivational.  Our original plan was to hike just 14 miles and make camp on Saturday night at a place called Chattahoochee Gap, but luckily Grayson was up for the extended challenge.
