"Grasshopper and I walked into Dicks Creek Gap and immediately got a ride into Hiawassee from a fellow who calls himself “Tater.” He thru-hiked the AT in 2000. We took a “zero” day (walked zero miles) at the Hiawassee Inn, where we did laundry, took showers, dried out our gear and ate as much food as possible."
