6/1/2014 – Day 82 – Total Miles 1006.5
Back on the trail and glad of it… Just two days to finish the aqua blaze. it’s a lot harder than imagined. We were back on the trail before noon and as we hiked were told of trail magic at Blackburn center, Free dinner!!! So that became our goal… To Eat!!! We made it by 5pm and had a feast with about 15 others. Awesome.
Today we passed the yellow 1000 mile pole and passed from VA to WV. Tomorrow we will make our way into Harpers Ferry with a short 12 mile hike and check in at the ATC conservancy for my official weigh in and photo. I have heard so far that 340 hikers have made it this far and received their check in numbers. Out of 2 to 3 thousand that started… I’m in good company.
