SOBO Flip completed, now for the NOBO Flop!!
On Sunday, May 15th, the trio finished the southern leg of their FLIP-FLOP SOBO and TAB (Trail Angel Bobbi) picked us up for the return to Virginia. 806.1 miles, 2 months and 2 days of hiking and the first part if our mission is completed!!
For Greyhound, there was little rest for the weary. She had just enough time for a good night’s rest and a resupply after the 8 hour long drive back to Lynchburg. She’s scheduled to attend a college friend’s wedding next weekend and had to hike to Harper’s Ferry (217 miles) in 10 1/2 days and catch a shuttle to D.C. and flight to Kentucky! We dropped her off at 4:10 p.m. on Monday and she already had 35 miles done by the end of Tuesday!! Greyhound is a BEAST!
In the meantime, Mountain Goat & Chopper “struggled” through 2 days of R & R before jumping back on the trail Wednesday. The plan is to reunite with Greyhound when she flies back thru D.C. and shuttles back to Harper’s Ferry a week from Tuesday.
Saturday, we completed 55 miles NOBO and met up with some more super trail magic in Afton. TAB and TAS (Trail Angels Susan & my wife Bobbi) picked us up at the trailhead (Waynesboro) and deliver us to the home of TAL, TAV & TAK (Trail Angels Laura, Victor and Katie) where we got hot showers, watched a couple movies, did laundry, resupplied and had an incredible home cooked meal. TAS & TAB will drop us off tomorrow and we’ll continue NOBO and the Shenandoah National Park.
Today’s Hike is History, Tomorrow’s Hike’s a Mystery
Right now is a Gift and why it’s called the Present!
