Day 100 Appalachian Trail, VA Miles Hiked to Date: 1011 Hiked yesterday: 14 Trail Miles, Miles to Katahdin: 1173
Chipmunk and I got up early and dressed and ate before we knocked on Ellie and Mike’s camper door. As promised, they came out and gave us big hugs before we headed back to the trail. I thanked them again for the wonderful visit and for spoiling us. Most of all, it was really good to connect with good friends.
After dinner, we returned to the gap to camp overnight. Other hikers arrived and set up tents in a clearing but Chipmunk was too tired to go out and socialize. We both fell into our bunks by 7:30 pm and I don’t think either of us awake past 8 pm… including Chocolate Chip. I fell asleep realizing that Chipmunk would be hiking into Harpers Ferry in the morning.
