Day 13 and 14 – Into the Smoky Mountains

Not much to report except that cell phone service is bad so updates will be most likely irregular.

Jeb camped with his father at Mollies Ridge Shelter at mile 177 on day 13.

Day 14, his father went back to Fontana Dam while Jeb went onward for a 17.7 mile day. He is currently at Silers Bald Shelter at mile 194. Almost to 200 miles! Today he was walking through old snow drifts and melting snow causing a river on the trail. It also rained all day.

Tomorrow, I will be shipping another resupply box to Hot Springs, NC since the AT literally passes by the post office. He should get there by the end of the week.
