We spent another series of terrific days in the woods and are tonight staying at Haven's Budget Inn with our friends Fran and Harry. Many other hikers are here. The guy who runs this place (and maybe the entire county?) shuttled us around and played guitar and fiddle for us for like an hour. Went to the local bar cafe for foosball and New England brews. Also nice japanese restaurant, used book store, and health food store. Cool little town. Good for hikers. We are about mile 110 of the hike. Will be back on tomorrow morning. Next town stop will be Fontana Village, NC in about 50 miles. Then we enter the much anticipated and feared great smoky mountains for 7ish days.
