Glad to hear you are doing fine. The pic's are great also !
Thought you may be interested in this I found at Scotts blog :http://www.creekside.net/walkaboutblog/PermaLink,guid,d08d2e86-8533-4739-bf57-fe47db9cd910.aspx
Has to do with those pesky shelter mice we hear so much about. I don't know about you guys, but those critters would drive me NUTS !
Put three or four cotton-balls in a 35mm film canister then put several drops
of Oil of Peppermint on them. When turning in for the night, open the film
canister, pull up a cotton-ball and the Oil of Peppermint keeps the mice away!!!
Don't know if this works, but may be worth a try, eh ?
Have you ever heard of this trick ?
Hope the weather is great for you, and the walk is fantastic !
Just thought I would see how you guys are doing. Looks like you have made some good progress. REI Folks say 'Hey'! I will check back later. Safe travels!

Just looking on trailjournals to see who was in mid - nc so far when i came across your journal. Like your map. FYI, night hiking in the fog is a lot easier if you hold your headlamps at waist level (less glare - better visibility). Enjoy your trip.

Enjoyed the pictures...what a challenge. Wish you guys the best. Carolyn

You guys are making me want to hike the trail. Seriously. I think the next adventure should be biking across country. I'll come with you. We can be roommates again. Stay warm and keep up the good work! <3
Love your journal and pics! Glad to hear you don't seem to have many physical problems since you mentioned you didn't train much prior to starting. I admire your courage for taking the time for this adventure. Best of luck! I'll be reading...
