Thanks for all the encouraging words. Dave is feeling better. Not quitting(he isn’t a quitter) or anything just having one of those days. I think Allen you had it right. The VA blues. Longest state on the AT 550 miles.
PTD and Jimmy(The Flying Scotsmen) eagerly awaited Jim Lemire’s visit. Jim and his wife took them both to the Chinese buffet in town. Nice visit. Very nice for Jim to invite the Scotsmen to have lunch w/us too. PTD really appreciates Jim taking time to come see him. He also has been great support for Pam. THANK YOU!!! After lunch Jim brought them to the grocery store, pharmacy and to the SNP headquarters so they could obtain their back country hiking permits (just like they needed to get in the Smokey’s). The ranger says it is going to be a busy weekend for hikers. It is Memorial Day Weekend and EVERYONE wants to hike and camp in the Shenandoah’s. Jim and his wife said their goodbyes to PTD and the Scotsmen and dropped them off back at the trail head about 12:30 or so. Super visit!
Tonight both of them stayed at the Calf Mountain Shelter.
Next visitor is coming Sat night. Can't wait to see his sister.
