The weather is finally stellar today. Left P Wolfe shelter about 7 am after sleeping in the shelter because of storms last night. Going to do 15+ today but have another 500 ft and 1 mile to finish Humpback Mountain.
I’ll post more later with an update on my mileage for the day.
Update: It turned out to be a long grueling day. After summiting Humpback Mountain I still had 10 miles to go with all the gas out of my tank. To make matters worse there was a section of trail that was the rockiest I’ve seen so far. But I still made the 15.8 miles to Maupin Field shelter before dark. The “brothers” rolled in about 10 pm after hiking the 25+ miles from Waynesboro. Crazy guys!
