Tuesday, June 7 - day 75 - Mile 834.9 - Reeds Gap
Today after breakfast we were shuttled to Reeds Gap where 5 of us started a 20 mile slack pack back to the Dutch Haus. The weather was a bit cooler the predicted but still very humid.
We hiked south over several mountains including The Priest at over 4,000'. In all we hiked up a total of about 7000'
The timing was just what we expected. We started at 8:14 AM and finished at 5:30 PM.
Got in touch with Jack & Jackie Purcell who graciously agreed to have us come by their home for a day and confirmed a pick up time with Jack for Thursday at the AT crossing at 64&250 in Waynesboro. Looking forward to the chance to resupply.
Also got in touch with Guardian who will join us when we return to the trail on Friday morning.
