Monday, May 16 - Day 53 - Mile 528.1 - Partnership Shelter
23 miles today. A new record!
The day started off wet, but improved quickly and it turned out to be a perfect hiking day.
We had a great breakfast with Circuit Rider, Sherlock and Gary the trail angel who gave us a ride to and from the hostel. We had some wonderful conversion and then set off for the trail head with more prayers promised. Hope we run into Circuit Rider & Sherlock again up the trail.
We hiked today from 8:22 AM to 6:15 PM. Buffalo Bobby has already turned in.
The Partnership shelter is near enough to a pizza place that you can order delivery. When we arrived we met Rocky and Laugh Track who had plenty of left over pizza that they shared with us. Super nice!!!
This Is a new shelter that actually has a shower and a second level and is within walking distance to a visitors center the has full services during the day.
We're making great progress in VA.
Lots of love,
