Day 57

Ninay shelter to Catawba Mountain shelter – 24.7 miles
706.2 / 1479.1

2 big things today! Were back to doing big miles for a while-I got word from winging it, he got stuck in a vortex longer than me and fresh did, and he will be in waynesborro this weekend, so were planning on catching up to him (24 miles a day). Also, passed 700 miles today!

That is official. The terrain today started out real easy. We did the first 10 miles in 3.5 hours. There was trail magic at almost every road in the form of sodas. Road sodas, ha. Then it became difficult around dragons tooth. Also the rain didn’t help. It was very rocky and steep, which slowed us down tremendously.

Were planning on an early night, waking up at 5:30 so we can hike the 19 miles to troutville before the post office closes. I will keep you posted!
