Day 10 – Push to the NOC

Hello everyone. I left Wayah Bald shelter this morning at 0530 and was plunged into more snow. The storm let off at about 0200 earlier so everything was fresh and the trees were laden. I made the 17 miles in just under 8 hours to the Nantahala Outdoor Center. My shoe had a blowout and I fell 3 times. I am now showered and just finished repairing my shoe. I’ll head out again in the morning to make the long climb out of the River valley.

Check out my Day 10 video. Gorgeous view!

Don’t leave Merrells next to the fire too long.
Glue + more glue = fixed shoe (at least until HH6 sends me new ones lol)
