Long hike today! North Carolina! We finished our first state and I couldn’t be happier. NC has mountains.. wow. Totally changed instantly upon enter the state. Staying in a shelter called standing Indian with 4 others. 16.4 miles that ended with a nice camp fire and great conversation. Still got a nice head cold going and my feet are OK so I’m going to bed early still. Half of me wants to be next to the fire and the other half wants my sleeping bag. After hiking through tall (up to 2 feet) drifts of snow all day my sleeping bag wins. I was concerned about protein and nutrition so I changed it up a bit at the restock yesterday. Counted my protein intake for the day… 60 grams. Awesome. I fell like I’ve finally got my diet under control where its somewhat healthy and I’m getting the calories and protein I need. I’ll lay out my typical meals for the day later in the week if anyone is interested. Over and out. Got some tissues for free in a hiker box. Yes!
