Amicalola Fall – Dick’s Creek Gap, day 1-6

The first 6 days on the AT are done, 69,6 miles + 8,8 miles Approach Trail. Experienced most what you expect from a Thru Hilke: Temperatures below 0 (Celsius) the first night, sun-burned our necks the second day, heavy rainfall and pitching our tent in deep mud (Mud can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry, snow can burn your eyes but only people make you cry – Lee Marvin, Wandrin’ Star) on day 4, an unplanned town-stop in picturesque Bavarian-style Helen, Georgia on day 5 for getting out gear dry again and a lot of sun with temperatures up to 27 C on day 6. Add some gear problems as a dirt water bottle that did not fit together with the filter or ultralight tent pegs that did not work and you get a perfect Thru Hike start! More to come, we keep on hiking!

  1. Die Fotos wirken freundlicher, als die Beschreibung klingt. Ich hoffe, es geht euch eher gemäß der Fotos. Machts es gut!!!


    1. Ist schon härter als wir es uns vorgestellt haben. Gelände so dass wir selten 4 km/h schaffen. Schau ma mal wie’s weiterläuft. LG!
