Up and out of shelter early. Feet are sore, boots are wet back. He wants to get to Harpers Ferry by night fall to meet me and my mom.
He stopped by the Bear Mt Shelter (beautiful stone shelter) this morning and got a Dr Pepper and a Mountain Dew. Met a man (Pipe Smoke - Thu-hiked a few years ago)doing trail maintenance for a week from NH. They got talking and come to find out he knows Clinton, Dave's old boss in southern NH. Never know who you will meet out on the trail.
He called to tell us he hit the VA/WV line around 11:30am. Then around 1:00 today PTD hit 1,000 mile mark. Whoohoo! 1,000 miles.
Ponytail arrived in Harpers Ferry around 4pm. He hung out at the 711 and "The Pub" till we arrived. Due to the storm it delayed us and we didn't get there till almost 6pm.
We were all so excited to see each other. It has been a month since last time I saw PTD.
We headed right for the hotel. Wanted to get checked in and showered so we could go out to eat. We all really needed to eat dinner. Long day for all.
