Day 91

I got back on the trail today. I camped a little north of the Rausch Gap Shelter along a creek.

Early start and a slow pace all day. Early on I met two female day hikers at an overlook.

At lunch time I came across a guy doing Trail Magic just as he was getting ready to leave. I got some watermelon and cold beer.

Towards the end of the day, I met Page who is a Ridge Runner. Ridge Runners are employed to hike sections of the trail and to know what is going on in the area. I do not see them a lot, but they are around.

  1. Am I right that you did 29.5 miles today, you must be feeling a little better, so thankful. I do believe you will be in the hundreds and leaving the thousands today. What a great milestone, keep enjoying before the boulders get you on all fours.

    1. The bugs are not yet horrific. But I did put bug spray on for the first time yesterday. The skeeters, gnats and biting flies are out.
