Day 19: Gatlinburg

Publish date: May 6, 2019

On the AT, it’s important to manage your body and log zero-miles of hiking. Rob thinks he’s developing tendinitis in his ankle, so we decided to give ourselves our first “zero-day” in Gatlinburg, TN. What a bizarre place. It’s like a boardwalk town without the beaches, in the middle of nowhere. While it’s great to be back in society where I can eat whatever and shop whenever, I mostly just miss the trail today.
