Day 37-Escaping the Rain

Day 37-Escaping the Rain

Hi,

Day 37 started out a little rough, because our alarm didn't go off yet again. We woke up a bit late at 8:30 so we tried to pack up fast. i was not happy that we had to start the day off in the rain. It started really coming down right when we began walking. Only a bit over a mile though, we saw "Teddy's Restaurant" ahead. Sweet, we can get out of the rain and get some breakfast. Levi and I stood outside for a minute contemplating the best way to enter without getting the whole restaurant all wet, but before we could even decide Teddy came out and told us to  come in right away and get out of the rain. We sat and he poured us some coffee. Then Dustin came over and took our order. Right away Levi and I were so happy and appreciated how friendly the two were. We ate our food and drank a million cups of coffee. We figured we might as well get dessert and ordered the "gut buster" which was the most gigantic sundae we had ever seen. While we attempted to finish it Teddy and Dustin sat and ate their breakfast and we all chatted. It was still pouring outside so Teddy told us to stay for a while. He showed us his wall of pictures he called his "people, places, and things" and then took a picture of us so he could add it to the wall. Levi and I really enjoyed our time there, and about 2.5 hours later we finally departed.

Luckily, the rain was light and ended up stopping for the rest of the day not long after we left Teddy's. We walked to Gate City, about 12.5 miles from Nickelsville where we started the day, and it went rather fast. We had all that sugar energy from the Gut Buster! We walked through the city and ended up climbing up a hill behind a restaurant to set up camp. It was a good day :)

Survived the Gut Buster,
