Posted from Bland, Virginia, United States.
Had an early start today, but I had to hitch into Blanch since I had almost forgotten a sacred May day. Once back on the trail I had a pretty good day. Halfway through the day I had 21 miles of creek crossings. Rather than deal with wet boots, I just hiked in my camp shoes. It was a nice break in the day. Planning on an early start to beat the heat. I still don’t do well if it is hot.
