I slept really well.But it was no good I need to do my chores.
First on the list Walmart. Google said that it was a 22 minutes walk,so off i went and soon arrived at the store. I zipped up the aisles dropping stuff into my trolley. The problem with large stores like Walmart is that the packs are always far bigger than the amounts you actually needs only my want a so you end up buying a big box .oh well.
I was pleased with my shopping . oh gas I need gas, typically they only sell the medium size which is not a problem as it will last longer. Okay all done. Next my phone.
The lady in the phone dept. was really good and allowed me to try a Verizon sim, it gave us Wi-Fi but nothing else so I reluctantly went with AT&T
Once paid I made my way to a bin and discarded all the outer wrappings to make my shopping lighter for the walk back
In my shopping i had purchased 2 x 1.5 liter smart water bottles as these are the prefect bottle to carry as they fit easily into the side pockets of your pack. But why the hell did i not pour the water away rather than struggling back with the weight !!!!!
As I got to the road I noticed that I had lost my necklace, bollocks but I was not going to stroll back to look for it, as it was a long way back to the hotel carrying my heavy shopping. I was so pleased when I finally arrived back to my room..I put on the air con and collapsed on the floor.
Once revived I began to decent my food into zip-locks and then into my pack which began to grow in weight. Too much stuff Snail .too much.!!
Once done I re organised my bounce box before sealing it. Typically once sealed I came across more gear that needed to be inside it . bollocks I said to myself ,I will just dump the excess gear.
OKAY post office, I put my bounce back into it’s suitcase and headed for the post office. As most people drive it was not an easy walk.
I eventually arrived all sweaty and hot, passed over my box and other items paid the postage and then could relax
When you post an item in the USA
DO NOT LOSE THE TRACKING NO!!!
Maybe even take a Photo!!
I will explain about this later
My chores are now done apart from a shuttle I will do that later.
On the way back I decided to explore the town as I really fancied a beer
Eventually I came across an Irish bar called Shenanigans. It sounded perfect to me and it was. My first beer was 7.5 % that’s rocket fuel for us Brits but god it was so tasty. I ordered some chips with bacon and salsa which was delicious. I chatted to several people at the bar as it was so friendly . So check out Shenanigans in Dahlonega a Great place.
once back at my hotel I arranged my shuttle, Appalachian trail here I come whoop.
I best have a early night
