Monday Check-In!
Meghan Nesmith

Dammit medium. And billfold. It’s so hard to get here on Mondays.

So $23 for gas Friday, and …$8 for food. Then $15 for breakfast at the NOC when we shuttled cars after a gorgeously clear night spent sleeping in a firetower. Hiked 11 quick miles to the next firetower, met some cool people, learned some Cherokee, and had the best sleep of my life in my tent in a massive thunderstorm.

Woke up in a cloud, took a blue blaze down to the road, stopped at Kelly’s for burgers ($24 because my hiking buddy didn’t bring cash).

Another $8 in food on the way home. I am always hungry :)

Total: $78
