29 Mar 2007: day 48
Start Destination Daily Miles / Total
BRP 282 BRP 282 0 / 618.2

I didn't mean for this to be a zero day. I packed everything up and left for the library and a restaurant. I found both of them almost next to each other. The library is a boring story but Melanie's ( is more interesting.

Melanie's does business on the corner of 421 & Depot. It serves breakfast all day but has great lunches. When I came inside Melanie herself came over to talk to me about my hike. Backpacking is her passion and she has done 1000 miles on the Appalachian Trail and has plans to finish the rest. She picked up the tab for my lunch. I'm thinking about the buttery Melanie Burger with feta cheese right now. I should have take a picture of it and the restaurant. Both are highly recommended.

To shorten a boring story I hitched into Blowing Rock which is right off the MST/Parkway but 10 miles further than I was. The plan was to get a room in town then hitch down the road to where I left off yesterday and walk back. Unfortunately by the time I actually got settled in, it was too late to try hitchhiking down the BRP and doing those miles. Instead I bought some beer and groceries and went back to my room to dry things out and make some phone calls.

P.S. m y room at the Alpine Village Inn is totally decorated for an old lady. All this clutter and there is nowhere to to sit and write my journal.
