SPRINGER MOUNTAIN, GEORGIA: A 2K-mile hike Khris started 21 Mar 2013. A promise that made it onto his bucket list but a few years ago, finishing the Appalachian Trail is something he wants to dedicate to the U.S. Armed Forces Heroes. He wants to give back to the USO & the American Red Cross because of the services provided for him during his 26 yrs in the USAF.
Day 2 (22 March 2013, Friday) 3.8 Mi_8.1 Mi/Hawk Mtn Shelter
Hoisting cables so bears cannot reach them...
Tent Location at Three Forks
Hawk Mtn Shelter which sleeps 12 people
Hiked 3.8 miles today with total of 8.1 miles for the "Hike for Our
Heroes" project; it was awesome and no issues. He spent the night at
the Hawk Mountain Shelter with other hikers. It rained all night; felt sorry
for those hikers who set their tent up.
