Day 36 US 58 Campsite to Old Orchard Shelter (22.8 miles) 509.2 total mile
Windy and rainy most of night but woke up to sunshine. Looking like a good day to get some miles in.
Got hiking early. Motivated. Clipping right along until 1 mile into day I run into trail magic.
4 guys who had thru-hiked last year had eggs, pancakes, and anything else a hiker can crave. I was one of the first there. Stayed for about 45 minutes and, when I left, there were about 20 people there. Hosts were hoping people would spend Cinco de Mayo there.
Rain, wind, and cold. Hope it’s nicer in AM. Still 23 miles to Marion, VA.
