  1. Day 66: 600 miles!

    Woke up rested and ready to get to Weary Feet Hostel. The description said food focused, so I was all in. We have 16 miles of pretty easy terrain. After 6 miles we hit the 600 mile mark!! Itís exciting how the 100 mile markers are coming more frequently. My legs started to feel it about mile 14 or 15, but thankfully we didnít have much farther at that point. But at the very end I was disappointed when Guthooks (the hiking app that marks the trail) was wrong and we had to hike and extra .5 miles ...

  2. Day 65: Good, but late start to the day

    Woke up and got ready to head out this morning. The plan is to do 18 miles today, but Iím not sure when weíre getting back to the trail. The hostel owner decided to take the group to Maggieís Place for breakfast. Iíve heard great things about their food, so I decided to jump on board. Literally. It was a great breakfast. Well worth the late start. Itís 10am already and still not on trail, but oh well. Finally, made it back on trail just after 11am. I got a little frustrated. We would be ready to ...

  3. Day 64: Ready for a hostel stay

    Today we have 12 miles to Mountain Garden Hostel and I am ready for a hostel. Iím hot and smelly. We have a good climb up to Chestnut Knob Shelter the itís rolling the rest of the way. That was one tough climb. Today I still feel like I donít have that push to get me uphill, so Iím taking lots of breaks. But hey Iím still moving. Iím glad Iím doing this climb at the being of the day and not the end. Had some great views from the top. From the shelter we have 6 miles to the road, it wasnít too bad, ...

  4. Day 63: Uneventful Day

    Today we have 12 miles to the next shelter. Weíll see what time we get there and whether we want to push further or stop. Today was a pretty uneventful day. I donít know if itís the heat and Iím not drinking enough water, but I just donít feel like I have that extra push and Iím definitely feeling it on the uphills. Made it to the shelter before 3 pm, so we decided to push another 4 miles to Lick Creek Campsite. Nice spot right by the creek.

  5. Day 62: Moving Forward

    Got shuttled back to the trail first thing in the morning. We have 15 miles today to get to Davis Path Campsite. I have a heavy pack with 5 days of food. Going slow and steady today with several good breaks. Made it to Atkins, VA around 2:30pm, which was about 11 miles in. Not Sure decided he had gone far enough today with his heel pain and 2 knees decided to stay with him. Iím really ready to start averaging 15 miles each day and I donít think Not Sure will be there anytime soon, so I think itís ...
