For your amusement my journal entry from 4/19/96 - the day I reached Neels Gap (AKA Walasiyi Inn).
4/19/96 Pain, pain, pain. Got to Neels gap did a tough 3 miles, though last mile was not to bad. Raining most of the day. Got a shower, a bed, food. Me, Dan, Waldo, a thru-hiker from last year named Clay and a Ridgerunner named Leslie all went out for Chinese. I had Cashew & Shrimp, mmm, mmm good! I've got 10 miles to do tomorrow to make it to Low Gap, I don't know if I can make it. Both my legs feel swollen, all my toes feel numb. I have a rash on both of my legs, sunburn on my arms and neck blisters between my toes and just general pains all over. Waiting for the sunshine...
I don't remember exactly where I took this picture, but it was after a storm in the Georgia mountains.
