Just an update on Matt's 30th day on trail:
Yesterday Matt took a scary fall in a stream while leaving Erwin, TN that banged up his knee and bent one of his trekking poles! However, this morning when he woke up he was feeling better and knocked out 22 miles in one day. In case anyone is wondering, 22 miles is almost exactly 1% of the entire AT, which he completed in just a single day.
I'm not entirely sure, but I'm going to guess that he is around Roan High Knob Shelter, TN.
