  1. Day 72: Virginia Blues

    Today we slept in an extra hour due to our late day yesterday. Packed up and left Angelís Rest by 8:30am. Got a shuttle back to trail. We are going to play today by ear. Thereís a shelter at 10 miles and weíll go from there. Today starts with a climb. After a zero and 2 days of slack packing, I have to get use to my pack again. It was a struggle. I drank all my water and had to go .4 miles off trail to get more. Even the flat ridge was rocky which made it challenging. I took a lot of breaks today ...

  2. Day 71: Slack Packing 21 miles

    Today we a slack packing again. The terrain is harder today, so we arenít moving as fast as we did yesterday. For some reason a few miles in I started to not feel well. I stopped to drink some water and it hurt a little in my stomach. I didnít feel sick more of just a lack of energy. At this point we still had 15 miles to do which didnít seem possible in the moment. I texted our shuttle driver to see what our options are. There were some closer pick up points but they were more expensive. We stopped ...

  3. Day 70: Slack Packing 20 miles

    Got an early start to do our 20 mile slack pack SOBO back to Pearisburg. Started the day off with a climb, but it was switch backed really well so not too hard. Even though itís 20 miles itís suppose to be nice and easy. Made good time and got to Rice Field Shelter for lunch. The nice thing about going SOBO is seeing the NOBO hikers. I came across Poet and Scribe. Two brothers I hadnít seen since the NOC. I think they have always just been a day or two ahead of me, but now Iíve caught them so hopefully ...

  4. Day 69: Zero Day at Angels Rest

    Taking a zero today at Angels Rest in Pearisburg. Tried to get my second COVID shot, but they wouldnít let me get it one day early and they are closed tomorrow for Memorial Day. So Iíll have to coordinate that in Daleville. Watched Jurassic Park and chilled around the hostel all day.

  5. Day 68: Easy day to Angelís Rest Hiker Haven

    Today is only 11 miles to Pearisburg. Itís flat and mostly downhill. Woods Hole served breakfast at 8am, so we were on trail by 9am. I felt good and the terrain was easy, so I powered through and made it to Pearisburg by 2pm. Checked into the bunk room and got settled in. The Food Lion is in walking distance, so resupplied for my zero tomorrow. Angelís Rest offers a 20 mile slack pack that I think we will do Monday after our zero.
