Today we hiked 16.4 miles to a campsite just outside of Damascus where we met our friend Amy, who recently moved to North Carolina. She brought us all kind of goodies: wine, cheese, baguette and salami, and apples! We made a campfire and toasted the baguettes with the cheese, it was delicious. We are now in Virginia, and we’ll be here awhile. A quarter of the trail is in this state, and we’ll be over a thousand miles before we leave. Trail days is this weekend in Damascus so we will have a few days off and will hopefully get a new tent.
