I did my biggest day today, 23.7 miles despite running out of water twice and hiking almost 3 hours in the dark…it’s 10:30 now, normally I’m asleep by 8 (although I always wake up at 2 for some reason) so no posts today. My goal is to get to Troutville, VA tomorrow (18 miles). Their volunteer fire department let’s hikers take showers and do laundry on the county’s nickel. They also have a park in the city (pop. 461) where you can pitch your tent for free, if they had a soup line I’d never leave!
I don’t remember the name of this mountain, I’d vote to rename it to golf ball mountain.
