Where I stayed
rented a house
was Sherlocks 40th birthday! Hiked 15.7 miles. The owner of the
castle gave us a ride to breakfast and then to the trail head! Hiked
around Watauga lake and dam. Got some really good views and pics.
Hiked in a soda and some treats for Sherlocks birthday and then we
sang to him. Gave the English guy a American birthday on the side
of the trail.
26 miles that's right!!! My first marathon day! The day started
off cold and rainy but i wanted to get to Damascus and get out of TN
I did both!!! While crossing in VA I heard this loud cracking sound.
I turned around to see this large tree fall! So if a tree falls in
the forest you do here it and it scares the shit out of you! On the way
down the hill I called Nobody. He found me a place to stay. I got to
town around 7pm dropped my stuff off and took a shower. I met up with
Little Brown, Moonpie and Nobody. We all started the same day! over 40 days ago!! It's amazing we're all still on the trail. So we went to the bar and they
had Sam Adams Summer Ale on tap!! What a good way to end my first 26
mile day and celebrate making it to Virigina with old friends and good times : )
