                                Mountain Man

"I arrived at the shelter shortly before Blowtorch, Mountain Man, Bill the Pony, and some section hikers. Carpenter rolled in later. There was a couple stationed at Stecoah Gap where a highway cuts through the mountains. They were serving hot chocolate and hot dogs to hikers. It was very nice and I appreciated the hot dogs. Tomorrow I will make it to Fontana Dam and sleep in the Fontana Village Resort, sharing a room with Grasshopper, if he catches up to me."
