Spotted my first hikers!

Ran into Bama and 65 (who was on the PCT the same year as me!) an noon near the Pinhoti Trail junction. It was great chatting with them, until I realized I had 20 miles to do in the next 7-8 hours.Busted it to the shelter and had it all to myself! Pleasant roadwalks through beautiful Georgia hill country. I felt like I was in the South as shown in “Gone With the Wind”–rolling hills with (not big plantations) but nice farmhouses.
