Appalachian Trail Map

And the cloud rolled in overnight, so more sprinkles and dampness. Fortunately it burned off quickly this time.

Saw a hiker who looked too fresh, we assumed he just started in Erwin. Later we met a southbounder, Righteous, who said the previous hiker was one of the "clean thru-hikers" that frequently stops at motels, shaves, launders, etc. Just doesn't fit the normal thru-hiker profile.

Stopped at Uncle Johnny's Hostel, but still had a mile road walk (ugh) to the hotel. After walking only 100 yards, a kayaker stopped and asked if we wanted a ride up to the gas station which happened to be right next to our hotel where we parked the car. Then we drove back to Uncle Johnny's to get a much needed shower. Once clean we headed to a Wendy's for some real food then the Dollar Store to get large trash bags to hermetically seal up our packs for the drive home. They were a little rank.

Stopped in Deleville for a celebratory BBQ dinner of ribs to help break up the drive home.
