Well, later that night he was sitting in the living room at the B&B just chatting with the other hikers and relaxing. Think there were about 12 staying there that night. When he heard voices in the other room. Thought they sounded familiar but really wasn’t paying too much attention. All of a sudden our friends Betty & Mikey walked in. Dave was in shock! A complete SURPRISE visit. They all gave each other the biggest hugs. They were traveling up from Florida and they knew he was somewhere in the area. They called me and I led the right to him. So, it was a good idea for him to go to town and not be in the woods tonight. He would have missed their visit. They stayed for a bit and talked. There was no rooms available at the B&B so they needed to go and stay down the road. PTD thought that was the greatest! Just out of the clear blue visitors. 1st friends from up north that he has seen other than family. While being on the trail. He says it was such an uplift to see them.
