Karl and Billy spent a few minutes refueling at Woody Gap and hit the trail again at 9:15. They have 11.8 miles to go to Hightower Gap. That's 19.9 miles left to Springer.
Seriously. 19.9 miles.
That. Is. All.
Many of you have written that you don't know what you're going to do when this is over. I'm with you, friends. It's been a fun ride. It's been a roller coaster, for sure, with some serious ups and downs and twists and loops. But I love roller coasters and this has been the best one I've ever been on. I know already that I'm going to have a severe case of PWKD – Post Where's Karl Depression – when tomorrow comes and Karl is not out there running anymore.
The last day I was on the trail with Karl we talked about his posting about his experience on this site. He is planning on it. It may be a few days, but he is looking forward to sharing his thoughts on the journey once he has had a bit of time to rest and process it all.
More on his progress to Springer soon. Please stand by.
