6/20 - Drove to Doyle River trailhead in Shenandoah National Park. Don and Jean Marie (from Waynesboro) met us there and gave us a ride to Jennings Creek after Starbucks. They offered us a future ride and place stay when we get to Waynesboro. Hiked to Bryant Ridge Shelter, where Nancy (aka, Lighten Up) wanted to revisit after our 3 month trip in 2012. She spent a lot of time sketching architectural diagrams during this stay. No-see-ums were biting a lot, and Craig (aka Kilt) barely slept as it was too warm to be in the sleeping bag and too buggy to be out. But we were happy to be under roof as there was a major thunderstorm that evening.
6/21 - Today is hike naked day but we didn't see any nudists. Arrived at Cornelius Creek shelter and met Ronin (again) and Gun runner, who saw some naked hikers. Sock fat, who is from Harrisburg, came later. Gun runner said he would steal the roof idea for his own. Lighten up said you can't steal a gift; Kilt said Karma will get you.
6/22 - Made some calls from Thunder Ridge from Kilt's phone as Lighten Up's was dead. Must have accidentally turned on in her pack. Stayed at Matts,Creek shelter. Met a local couple with a large pit bull. He was friendly after you "met" him but a intimidating to some hikers. Met Mailman and Ismael (again), who is 71 years old and thru hiking!
6/23 - Lots of nice views and some pretty serious climbs (for VA anyway). Stayed at Punch Bowl shelter. Water was flowing out of pipe thanks to to rain the last couple days. Started a fire and enjoyed the evening, which was our first without rain.
6/24 - Nice hike along many streams. Soaked our aching legs in one of them...natural icepack. Spent some time at Brown Mountain shelter as our previously arranged shuttle will not arrive until 3:30. Got to route 60 and a few hikers were looking for rides to Buena (pronounced BYU-na) Vista, which was were our shuttle was taking us. Arrived in town at the Bluedogart Cafe, got a shower, shuttle for resupply, and will get a shuttle back to the trail...all for $20 each.
