Day 66:

Pearisburg to campsite a mile past rice field shelter. 8 miles. For stops with water leaving Pearisburg, the options today were 8 miles or 17 miles. Otherwise we probably would have tried for 10 or 12. But no one wanted to try 17 coming out of town.

You would think that since the trail passed 50 feet from an AT&T cell tower 0.8 miles ago, there’d be great AT&T signal. But no. 1-2 bars of Edge only. No wonder Verizon works better out here!

I packed 5 dinners for this leg, which seems like exactly the number needed to get to Daleville. But it feels like I’m short on food since I’ve always had 1 or 2 extra before. But I think all the snacks I have this time will make up for it. The Krispy Kreme glazed cherry pie I had for dessert certainly made me feel better too.
