Location: Nantahala Outdoor Center

Total Miles: 137.3

Today's Miles: 5.9

Solid downhill walk for almost six miles today, took a few extra ibuprofen before starting in anticipation. 

Arrived at the NOC in time for lunch, had myself a double bacon cheese burger, french fries, a few cups of coffee and some sweet tea.

Spent the afternoon perusing the NOC 's outdoor store while waiting on our ride. Purchased a new dog leash (Ruffwear Roamer) and some electrolyte tablets (Nuun), also purchaed and printed our backcountry permits for the Smokies. 

Some trail magic came our way, so we're taking a zero tomorrow at a local hotel before pushing out for Fontana, and then: the Smokies.
