The Smoky Mountains require that thru hikers stay in the shelters unless it is over flowing. I was hoping it would be overflowing so I could camp out in my tent but I am being forced outside my comfort zone into sleeping in a shelter. 

I’ve heard all the shelters have nice problems…. im prepared to be in full freak out mode.

Other than that hiking through the Smokies haze been pretty chill. I’m having a little trouble with the altitude but I was still able to trek on for 11 miles. 

Rock and Roll.
