(from Ellie's journal, April 20)

Resting at the Hike Inn in Fontana dam, NC. rest, recuperate, refuel, rehydrate, resupply, reorganize. We're groaning that with the new 4-day food supply our packs are up to 30#.
I need to eat more. I have lost 7 pounds in 20 days. Gack, that means carrying more food, more weight in my pack. Well, it's 7# less on my body to lug, so it evens out, I guess.

Wow, talk about ups and downs! But that's just life, don't you think? Hang in there, you're doing great!

Absolutely facinating. I love the "she is here" map.

Be safe and have fun.

You are doing SUCH a great job! You are carrying me, but I'm as light as a fairy! Enjoy every step!
