End of my 6th week and broke 400 miles. Beginning to feel like we've done something. The Virginia State line is also close. Only about 54 miles away. We'll likely get some miles beyond Damascus before Trail Days at this rate.
Started off the day by having an amazing breakfast at the Mountain Harbour B&B just off the AT. (This hiker hostel set a new high standard) Then back on the trail. Still cold, but no snow, hail or rain.
Day turned out to be perfect so we had another high mileage day.
Tonight I'm tenting at a campsite with Buffalo Bobby and Vegemite. Starting to get cold quickly and we're bushed from our hike today so we're all in our sleeping bags at 7:45PM. (think I may have set a record getting the tent up this evening)
It's interesting that no north bound hikers have walked past us in the last couple of days. Despite seeing few hikers on the trail, the hostels and shelters are full.
With the beautiful weather today we we're treated to many great views. This section was also packed with waterfalls and rushing streams.
All continues to go well. Looking forward to seeing those who can make Trail Days.
Lots of love,
