Just a quick update from hot springs. It thunderstormed on us for 2 of the last 3 days. Getting ready to head back on the trail and it's raining again. Will be in the smokies in 2 days and luckily the weather is looking better later this week. My mom is coming out to hike with me for the afternoon on friday. I only have about 270 miles left. Should be done in just around 2 weeks.
