Tuesday, May 31 - Day 68 - Mile 719.9 - Daleville, Va
Today we only hiked about 10 miles into Daleville and checked into a motel. The temperature was 101 degrees so it was good to get out of our sweat soaked clothes into clean stuff and have a good meal. Even though the temperature was high the woods were much cooler so we really didn't feel it until we hit town.
Had a chance to call home and find out how everyone's doing as well as send blog updates & photos to Beth to add.
Tomorrow we start a 6 or 7 day trek to Montebello, VA where we'll stay at a B&B and get new boots. While a bit of rain would be nice to cool things off, dry weather would be nice for the next week to avoid blisters from wet boots & socks.
Hopefully we're nearing the "easy" part of VirginIa. The first 269 miles have given us quite a run.
Tomorrow we cross the 1/3 point mileage wise. We're likely somewhat beyond the 1/3 point time wise. We should be finished mid September the way we're traveling, but it's much too early to predict with so many variables.
Thanks again to everyone for all your thoughts, prayers and notes.
