Journal 64-ODYSSEY 2021: Bama to Baxter-Hike On!

Sponsors     Journals     Itinerary     Gear List

Saturday–April 24, 2021Trail Day–064
Trail Mile–00.0/(667.4 adjusted)\
Location–Quality Inn, Newport, Tennessee, AT Mile 240.5


Today will be a zero-mile day. We arrived Davenport Gap yesterday, a day early. So, a day of rest. And too, a day to pause, to be thankful (after finishing Great Smoky Mountains National Park).

Oh, and two other factors:

First, rain had been forecast for this entire day–and it came in just as predicted this morning. We’re in and warm. Yippee.

Second, after a little over two months on trail, I recently passed my quarter-of-the-way mark at 654.2 miles. Big YIPPEE!



Rest and be thankful.
(William Wordsworth)
