Day 15- Appalachian Trail

Day 15- Appalachian Trail

 

Good Day,
We got a few extra minutes of sleep thanks to some morning drizzle. After the rain let up we hit the road, hoping to make it to the A.T. (Appalachian Trail). Our day started well, with a meal at a diner. The tab was picked up by an anonymous persons. Right across the street was a very small grocery store where we picked up enough supplies to last 4 days. Weighed down with water and food we weren't as close to the trail as we thought. Luckily for us, half way there, Diana and Troy passed a meal to us through their car window (peaches, plums, hotdogs, and drinks). Getting closer and a man recommended we take the rail road track as a short cut. We did and his wife was waiting a mile or so down the line with some ice pops. She pointed us in the right direction, we were on the trail in no time! Pen Mar park was less than a mile down the trail and the view was amazing. We kept on trucking with knowledge of a camp site 5 more miles down the trail. We made it 4 and really close to a place called high rock. We set up camp (illegally maybe, we weren't sure) and hung our food far out of a bears reach. Not long after the tent was set up it began to rain again and we were more than happy to rest. A good day, but the trail was slower than we would have liked.

Hoping to pick up the pace,
Levi
