Skyscraper - AT - Jul 4, 2011 - Greatest Nation In The World!
Let me start out by saying that my right shoe is destroyed. The front part of the shoe and part of the side is separating and I can see the inside of the shoe. It has been getting progressively worse each day. We tried to call Merrell to get my no questions asked because I am hiking the AT replacement but they were closed on Sat. and today is a holiday. So tomorrow we will call and see if the outfitter here in Waynesboro can help us out. The amazing thing is that I have been hiking in them and my feet have felt good! Also amazing was that I bought the shoes used, hiked all last summer with them, and have used them for 854 trail miles plus all the other side hikes.

As for the hike today, it was mostly rolling hills that we blasted through. There was an old cemetery and chimney that we passed by, but not that cool. We met Frodo, Samwise, and Caboose, on our way to the shelter for lunch. Frodo was actually carrying the one ring! Samwise said he was named his name because he travels with Frodo and is more portly. They had really light packs, around 10 lbs base weight, and started on May 16th so they are flying. By the time we met them they had done 14 miles to our 6. They told us they average close to 4mph! Insane! Our Lord of the Rings names would be Faramir and Eowyn because lots of people already have Strider, Arwen, etc, and they get married too.

Well we made it to Rockfish Gap before three and there on the guard rail was a list of trail angels so we called one and got a free ride to town. He dropped us off across from the YMCA where there is free tenting. Tomorrow we will be able to take a shower at the Y and supposedly use their facilities. But for now we setup our tent and walked to Krogers (grocery store) to kill time before going to Mings for a Chinese Buffet dinner, very good. We learned from the locals that it hailed pretty badly here last night but all we heard up in the mountains last night was thunder. So that was nice to have missed. It started raining here though so after the buffet we had to walk back five blocks in the rain and get in our tent. Not pouring rain though so all our stuff is dry and at least the rain has cooled things off a lot.

Tomorrow I think we will zero so we can do laundry, food shopping, and hit the library. My body is also requesting a full recharge of the hike uphill meter. Then its off to Shenandoah National Park!

Joyful here! So, wow...we've done lots of hiking lately. Sometimes the weather has got me down and out. Sometimes it's been exciting to view new and interesting things. Sometimes i've been very moody. It's crazy how emotions affect every day life on the trail sooooooo much.
Anyhow, so, we got to town today...yay. and we are doing the free camping at the Y, very nice! Love it when it's free! :)
When we got into town, Michael wanted me to call a trail angel. I looked at the list and thought, "well I can't pick just anybody." So LB and I looked down the list. Lots of men listed by themselves, some had clauses under their names such as, 'call after 5,' 'only weekdays.' And the like. LB suggested one of the men. I kept looking on down the list. There was a couple: Walt and Pam. That's who i'll call. And I did. He sounded really nice on the phone, we couldn't hear each other very well, not good reception. He said he'd be there in 15 mins. He actually got there in 5 mins. We was really nice! He'd hiked the AT, the PCT and part of the CDT. He played us this great song about the AT. It was encouraging! God lead me to pick the right trail angel...thank you Jesus!
Well...that's my contribution to todays post. Miss y'all! Bye!
