Trail Days was a blast!
Unfortunately most of my time there was spent doing hiker chores: gear repair, waterproofing, resupplying, etc. I did get to participate in the hiker parade though. All the hikers and alumni line up and march through town while the spectators pelt us with water guns and balloons. The hikers are known to retaliate as well. After four days off, I am itching to hike again. I got a ride back to Pearisburg with the Harper’s Ferry Outfitter and all the old gang. I think this may be the end of our journey together though, as we all have different mileage goals
At least I will be heading north again.
