Day 3 – No Room At The Inn

Day 3 on the trail was tough. You know how it feels a few days after you go back to the gym? Yeah, that’s it… pain…. lots of pain. So after a day of aching muscles and more hills , and this is the easy part?!? We get to the shelter area to settle down early. We forgot that this is the weekend. And that Boy Scouts camp on weekends. Great kids, loud and rambunctious but great kids. They even asked Moses if he’d like to share their Oreos. They gave him the first one!!! Me I spent time chatting with the adults and some of the kids. Heck, what Eagle Scout wouldn’t. I’ll share a couple picks of the action. Earlier today we said farewell to Mr. Soap (Mark “Post Card” Hughes’s Cousin) and had a nice chat with a couple section hikers (Laces and Pops). Hopefully we’ll get some sleep tonight and be ready to tackle the trail tomorrow. Yeah I know we will.

  1. It was great meeting you 3 on the trail. We struggled over the rocks to get to Cowall Shelter. It is small, and was full – we ran into more boyscouts and tented just down the hill. Our trail angel (Pops’ wife) drove up with dinner and spent the night. By the time you see this, you’ll probably be somewhere in PA. Best of luck, and reach out if you need something. We’re not a far drive from where you’ll be for the next few weeks. –Pops (Graham) and Laces (Jessica)


  2. Ibuprofen and Tylenol are your best friends,a long with any liniment and heat wraps. Glad you guys are LIVING your lives and having these experiences. I am enjoying your posts from afar,wish I could but know I cant do what you guys are doing,so living vicariously through you.Take a deep breath for me!
