4/27/2014 – Day 47 – Total Miles 484.6
Left Damascus this morning, I enjoyed the stay. Listener and I ate at every place you could buy food in town, lol… small town. Also did my winter/summer gear swap.
We hiked approx. 16.5 today and are camping in a small gap just short of our big climb tomorrow. By the way, anyone who says VA is easy to hike isn’t being completely honest. VA is easier but it’s still work to hike. Today seemed like it was mostly uphill, tomorrow is uphill again. 4 miles constant up. Woo Hoo!
It looks like thunderstorms tomorrow. We are hopeful to get out of camp dry but it’s unlikely. The rain adds 5 lbs of water to the pack weight… maybe not 5 but it seems like it, and you stay soaked all day!
Well, it’s 8pm and I’m exhausted once again. Checked my stakes again… Good luck.
The pic is of myself and “Right Here”… I thought it was Bob Brodin when I first saw him. Lol…
