Kadra's Grandparents on the AT!
These were their first steps ever on the trail at ages 81 and 85
Day 30 (Front Royal, VA to Bear's Den Hostel) -- 34 miles
Ran with Harland Peelle for a few miles, who gave up most of his morning to find me out there on the trail. Thanks tons Harland!!
We stayed last night at the Bear's Den Hostel after watching a beautiful sunset -- such a cool place.
Day 31 (Bear's Den Hostel to South Mountain Inn) -- 37 miles
Stopped by the ATC and got my picture taken -- see below. The WonderBoy Paul Davis met us later and we had a great run up to South Mountain. The biggest surprise of the last two days came when Grandpa Vernon and Grandma Ginny met us to celebrate Kadra's birthday (a few days early) with a special celebration at the Inn. The rest of us rednecks ate Sloppy Joes, Coca-Cola cake, and Ben & Jerry's back at the Davis' homeplace in Shepherdstown and had a great visit with many outstanding people including Bradley Mongold and his patient girlfriend, Jill.
