We encountered a trio of backpackers on Clawhammer Rd. at the second intersection with Buckhorn Gap who were looking for Twin Falls. They thought they were on FR477 and were looking for Avery Creek trail on the right. No map and trying to call someone on the phone for help. I explained they got the road wrong and gave them directions. I hope they made it.
Our drinking buddy from The Hub, Pura Vida Joe, joined us out in Pisgah. He is a real guide so of course we had to guide him. I'm tapering so we kept it nice and casual by doing the traditional Black > Turkey Pen Gap > Squirrel except we added a twist near the start and I bailed on the Top of Black finale.
Lost along the way:
I got Duma some boots to help keep his claw clean and took him out for a little stroll up a secret Pisgah road to get a multi geocache. The riddle was surprisingly hard and when I finally figured out the error of my ways had a good laugh.
