Today is an uneventful day. Just walked, saw at bear at a road crossing. Did get to have lunch W/the Flying Scotsmen at the Elkwallow Wayside Grill. This place is located where the AT crosses Skyline Drive in Elkwallow Gap. PTD had several BLT's and 2 chocolate milk shakes.
Ponytail traveled about 22.6 miles today to the Terrapin Station Hostel outside of Front Royal, VA. This hostel has a mattress and sheets on the bed. WOW! It is WOW because most hostels have wooden bunks and you provide your own sleeping pad and sleeping bag.
Next few days will be hard. Trying to get to Harpers Ferry in West Virginia by Friday night. That will be 57.2 miles in 2 days. He says he is ready for the challenge. Then he will have finished Virginia which was 550 miles long. The longest state.
