Day 3: Trail Magic, Trail Name

Started at Gooch Gap shelter, 9am, hit Lance Creek at 3:45, about 8 miles. 7.3 to Neel’s Gap tomorrow. No shelter here just tent pads and water, but it’s bright and sunny and good weather predicted the next few days.

Country Mouse and Shadow are here too. Shadow and I bonded over the Bull and Mouth bar in Riverside, CA of all things. It’s nit there any more though.

Carol and Gail set up a trail magic table at Woody Gap with sandwiches, fruit, Gatorade, etc. Carol thru’ed last year at 65 years old! My first ever pimento cheese sandwich was fantastic and so welcome.


That’s Carol, aka Lil’ Engine, on the left.

While sitting around at Woody, people were just calling me California. Seems like that might stick as a trail name, haven’t yet seen anyone else from California, so it works.

Had some great views today too, here’s one from whatever mountain is just past Woody Gap.

Location:Georgia 60,Three Sisters Mountains,United States

    Hey Joe,
    Thanks for the great updates! Sounds like a fantastic first few days! I like ‘California’ too – sounds like it may stick!

    We’re back here in CA prepping for snow camp. Remember when I said it was going to be cold? Well . . . Tomorrow night (our first night out), they’re predicting a low of 2 (no, that’s not a typo) and w/ wind chill maybe down to -22! Holy cow. So if you get a little cold out there this weekend just think of us – and where you could be!

    Enjoy the trail – looking forward to your next posts!
    Eric and Kristi

    Hello, it’s Shyla Barker here!
    I work as an academic writer and have created this content with the intent of changing your life for the better. I started honing my writing talent in college. I learned that my fellow students needed writing help—and they were willing to pay for it. The money was enough to help pay my tuition for my remaining semesters of college.
    Ever since high school, I have continued to work as a professional writer. I was hired by a writing company based in the United Kingdom. Since then, the essays that I have created have been sold around Europe and the United States.
    In my line of work, I have become familiar with hearing, “Shyla, can you help me meet my writing assignment deadline?” I know that I can save their time.

    Hello everyone , I’m Lynsey Velasquez.
    Welcome to my homepage . I started writing in middle school after a creative writing assignment for my English teacher. I did creative writing for almost a year before I thought about doing something else.
    I had always loved doing non-fiction writing because I’m passionate about learning. When you combine writing ability with a love of learning, academic writing only makes sense as a job.
    I’m passionate about aiding the students of the future in their school career. When they don’t have time for their paper , I am there to help.

    Writing is what I do for a living and I am so passionate about this. I have worked with several associations whose mission is to help people solve writing problems.
    I love traveling and have visited several places in the past few years.
    I’m happy to have written several books that have contributed positively to the lives of many. My books are available in several parts of the world. And I’m currently working with companies that help people save energy. Being a part of this team has open more opportunities for me to excel as a writer. I have worked with different people and met many clients as a writer.
    I can handle any kind of writing and provide nothing but the best. People come to me all the time to ask if I can solve their writing problems and I accept. I find pleasure in assisting them to solve their problems as a writer.
