Day 4: Blood, No Water

Early this morning hiked up Blood Mtn.  Towards the top some rock scrambles but well worth it.  The valleys were still filled with clouds.

A 4 mile descent to Neels Gap where cold drinks and snacks were had.  Then on north.

This part of GA has been in drought.  We left Neels with 2 liters each but then found the next two sources dry.  Arrived at Hogs Pen Gap, road crossing.  As I sat there thinking about what to do a truck painting lines on the road came by.  I flagged them down and they nicely shared 8 bottles of water with us.

Camped just outside of Hog Pens Gap.

  1. Glad you got water from friendly road workers! You may get a lot of water soon if Hurricane Matthew hugs the eastern coast in the coming week..then again, it is likely to track further east of the US. Love you!
