Easy Rider

Woke up after the smoke detector incident early. Decided to get started with my chores. Headed to the laundry room and did a load, sat there until it finished. Afterwards, headed back to my room for a shower. Then down for breakfast. I met another Ohioan, Hurdy Gurdy is from Columbus. Sputnik was there too. After breakfast I just relaxed and veg-ed until 10am.

Then Sputnik and I headed to the outfitters. It was not open yet, I called and they told me they were flooded last night and were opening late. So we sat at the bakery next door and had a little snack. Grace finally showed and opened the store. I bought a new Sawyer bladder, which is a temporary fix and a fuel canister. They did not have a pair of lightweight shorts. Afterwards, we headed back to the motel.

I still had my resupply to do so I decided to take a cab to the local Target. I found some shorts that will work, and got the food I needed. Then I crossed the street and got a smoothie for a pre-lunch! The cab picked me up and took me back. Then I packed up the stuff I wanted to send home. I walked the half mile to the post office and shipped my stuff. On my back I stopped at a cafe for a Cuban panini for a late lunch.

Got back and made a bunch of calls. Relaxed and started researching where I will come off the trail to pick up a rental car to go to our annual Jacox Family Reunion in Alfred Station, NY Memorial Day weekend. I am either exiting at Carlisle, Pa - mile marker 1130 or Lickdale at 1183.

Walked across the street for dinner again and had soup and a salad for dinner, very good. The salad had kohlrabi in it!

Back in the room, watching my beloved Cavs play the Celtics. Go Cavs!

Tomorrow I want to get out early, prolly cab-ing it to the trailhead! I will be exiting Virginia in 36ish miles. After Virginia, it is a quick jaunt thru West Virginia and Maryland and into Pennsylvania.

Appalachian Trail - 2018

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
