This was a strenuous day for Pinoy Airman.  The boulders at the Big Firescald Knob were painful and annoying; he slowly navigated through them but at the end of the day, his knees and heels were tender and aching.  He called me from the top of the ridgeline and skyped; one of the rare occasions, AT&T had 4G signals.  He showed me the view looking to the West (Tennessee) and East (North Carolina) of the ridgeline from his cell phone (Samsung Galaxy Note).  It was a first-rate view similar to the Smokey Mountains from the Clingmans Dome. Pinoy Airman reached the 300-mile marker today.
