Day 79

Sunny & Cool.

Today's Hike:
Thunder Hill Mtn. to Johns Hollow Shelter - 16.3 miles

We had our first hitch hiking experience into Glasgow, VA today. I was a nervous wreck! The walk toward Glasgow was rather dangerous; there was little space on the road to walk or for cars to pull over. It took about 45 minutes to get picked up. We were both so worried about making it back to the trail before dark that we resupplied at the local Dollar General at record speed, grabbed some greasy grub at the local gas station and managed to hitch a rider out of town. It wasn't until we were back at the trailhead that we both breathed a huge sigh of relief.
