AT zero number three!!

After a zero day in Daleville I had a good day of hiking and camped at Bobletts gap shelter. Rained all night. Got a late start, around 1030!! Still got a 20 and camped at Cornelius creek shelter. Crossed the blue ridge parkway a few times. Looks like a nice scenic road. The next day I climbed over thunder hill and crossed the James river. Camped at johns hollow shelter. Rained a bunch more. Nice hiking the next day. I almost made it to camp before the rain hit but managed to get soaked. Camped at cow camp gap shelter. After walking 2 miles in the morning I realized I forgot my sandals so I had to walk back to the shelter to get them. Had a nice sunny day finally! Was getting sick of the rain. Crossed the tye river and camped at harpers creek shelter. Made a nice fire. The next day was my favorite day so far on the AT! Great views and wonderful sunshine! Met a ton of cool people. Camped out at paul c Wolfe shelter. In the morning I did the 5 miles to rockfish gap and got a easy hitch into waynesboro. Got laundry done and ate at weazies diner. Got a free shower at the YMCA. While shopping at Kroger I ran into a hiker who said I could split a room with him. So I ended up staying the night in town.
