Macon, aka "Daystar" has texted her mother that the Smokies are a tough terrain and her pace has slowed quite a bit. Now she is thinking Gatlinburg on Friday"ish" or Saturday. We will have updates later in the week as her group slogs through some of the most difficult part of the hike in the South. I will meet her for the weekend so she and her group can shower, sleep, and celebrate Easter this weekend. Ronnie Milsap thought they hurt a lot as well so feel free to sing along.
