Day 53

Pearisburg to the Captains – 20.5 miles
651.8 / 1533.5

Getting back on trail was rough! Maybe because we had so much fun last night. It finally got nice out, and we started with a 1500 foot climb. I sweat out everything from the night prior, and the ridge line was pretty nice.

We got some good views, and made good time. We ended up coming to the captains around 5 pm. This is a guys house, who lives 30 yards off the trail, letting hikers camp in his yard even when he’s not home. We had to zip line across the river to get here. We all set up tents and found he has free sodas on his back porch. We met him when he came home and refused all donations. This place is amazing!
