He has made it to Damascus, VA and plans on resting for two days at a hiker hostel.
Words from the hiker himself:
"Have met alot of interesting, colorful, and down right damn fine people here. Zellie and I will be heading up to snowy Mount Rogers tomorrow. Wish us luck"
Of course, Good Luck to you! And I can't wait to hear stories. Especially about the "down right damn fine"!
