Slept in a little by this morning. No rush to get to the end with my plane ticket being a few days out.
Packed up quickly, sat and talked as the two dudes who camped last night packed up their things. Polished off the rest of that pizza I carried out from town last night.
Hiked with them for an hour or two until we arrived at a stream that required us to walk through. They started taking off their shoes to cross so I bid them adieu, tromped through, filled up my water and continued on.
Long morning of walking through unmaintained trail. Tons of spider webs across the trail as well, which slowed me down a bit.
Arrived at the junction around mid day that heads north to the Alabama border. Had half a mind to turn north and hike towards Springer Mountain and just hit the AT for another thru.
Arrived at a little gas station early in the afternoon. Plugged my phone in, slammed a Gatorade, foraged around the store for some treats. Settled on six Krispy Kreme's, a microwave burrito, and half a gallon of chocolate milk. Sat on the curb outside with my shoes and socks off feasting and airing out my feet.
Finished off the day with a road walk and a bit of the portion of the trail in west Eglin. Managed to find a stealth spot between campsites, a no no but the previous site was closed and very close to the road.
Town tomorrow for my last resupply, then the terminus shortly thereafter.
