Day 62 Rock Spring Hut to Thornton Gap (14.3 miles) 942.0 miles total
It’s much easier to hike on a day when you know 4 days of R&R are following!
Hiked to a spot where I thought would be good place to hitch a ride from. Thornton Gap is right along Skyline Drive so that became the target.
Made it to Thornton Gap about 2PM. Got a ride from one of the first cars to pass. A wonderful couple from Belgium, Bruno and Linda, picked me up and took me all the way into Front Royal (about 25 miles). Bruno and Linda are on a 3 week vacation touring PA, MD, and VA.
Thanks so much Bruno and Linda. It was a pleasure meeting you and talking with you. Safe travels!
Brooke picked me up shortly after 6 and we were in Baltimore about 8:30.
I am now officially on vacation. No hiking for 4 days. Perfect timing for the physical and mental break from the grind.
