It's around Noon as we finally get to Sam's Gap. As soon as we exited the woods, we saw a homemade sign that indicated there was more trail magic up a steep hill side trail. The sign promised scrambled eggs and bacon! As tempting as that was, Colin and I decided that we needed to keep moving due to the many miles still ahead of us for the day.
The AT passes underneath I-26 at the NC/TN border and we decide this is a great spot to rest a spell (in the warmth of the sun) and eat our lunch for the day...tuna, peanut butter, beef jerky, Ritz crackers, Pringles and Fig Newton bars. I think that covers all major food groups...are figs a fruit or veggie?
