50 days Ponytail has been on the trail. He loves it and wouldn’t trade it.
He says he was out bright and early today. Already by 9am he had done almost 4 miles. There was a delightful smell after the rain. He thinks it is honeysuckle.
Dave has now entered the Blue Ridge Parkway. The AT runs parallel to the Parkway.
Pretty sites at Montvale Overlook. He was there about 3ish.
PTD saw Air force One today. Said it was pretty cool! He ran into a park ranger and he confirmed it was Air force One.
He did run into some trail magic today. It was from Footnote & the Mrs. He got hard boiled eggs, pound cake, fresh strawberries, fresh carrots and broccoli, mountain dew and fresh water. This was fantastic. He says this helped his afternoon tremendously.
He will stay at the Cove Mnt Shelter tonight.
24.9 miles today and he feels great to be putting on the miles.
