Dave said he hauled butt today. He did about 27 miles today. A total of 51 miles in 2 days. At 6:30pm he hit the TN/VA line after 11hrs of hiking. He then walked another 3 miles into town.... Ponytail Dave has entered Damascus, VA!!!! 3 states down. He has hiked 463 miles in 30 days. Way to go baby! That is an average of about 15.3 miles A DAY.
He says he is beat. He has both feet wrapped in duck tape. Blisters, chaffing, hurting. Just plain old tired. Never been so exhausted.
He is staying at the hostel called "the place" in downtown Damascus tonight. It is a bunk house w/showers. $4.00 a night. Not the "Ritz". He was off to go get a quick bite to eat before going to bed.
He has assured me he will slow a bit. Only predicting on doing 23 miles between the next 2 days. He needs to give his feet a bit of a break.
Will have lots to tell really soon. Signing off till late next week. Pam
