Day 8:  Big Climb, Big Meal

Left the comfort of the Top Of Georgia hostel at 8 and hit the trail.  Hiked about 12 miles, with a big climb up out of Dicks Creek Gap.  Crossed into North Carolina this afternoon and ended at the Muskrat Creek Shelter.

Julian, my hiking partner for the moment, is a chef and made us both a wonderful meal.  I gathered wood and built a fire.  He sauteed garlic, apple slices, shallots and stock cubes.  He had frozen pork sausages last night and we grilled them over the fire.  Also had a mexican rice dish.  Wrap all that in a tortilla.  Darn good.
