Hot Springs, NC – Erwin, Tennessee, day 23-26

Mile 343 (352), km 569. Had some nice and sunny days, only little rain on Sunday. Seen some ‘old-style’ local country shops which are really worth remembering. Still much to cold for this time of the tear, temperature go down to 0 C nighttime in the mountains. Great views from Big Bald summit (pictures). Tomorrow will be our third zero day in Erwin, TN – some work has to be done, really hope the Wifi at our motel will work so I can do Skype calls. Biggest problem at the moment are my achilles tendons – they really hurt badly. I  used to this since I had to end my (ultra)running career 1999 due to a chronical inflammation but had not expected that hiking would cause such problems. Great that you get ice everywhere in the US – will take 3-4 ice trearments until we continue our hike Thursday morning.
