Cobalt and his Mom and Dad

Pressure D - AT - Jun 27, 2013 - Day 78 Mile 1019 Harpers Ferry
Well I arrived at the ATC headquarters at 10:30 this morning after hiking from the Blackburn Appalachian Trail Center. This was a 12 mile hike that I started at 5:45 in the morning. The terrain was relatively easy and I saw 4 deer during my hike. I got pretty excited when I was in the ATC headquarters, they took my picture and I am now known as through hiker number 791. It was good to see most of my friends pictures in the book, who all arrived before me. I called Cobalt and he invited me to stay with him and his Mom and Dad at the Econo Lodge. We went out for lunch and dinner, and was able to clean up, rest and do laundry. Theres a lot of hikers here tonight, people are coming in as we speak. Tommorow I plan 24 mile hike, which means an early start. I need to get to Smithsburg MD by saturday around noon before the post office closes for I am expecting a package from my wife. This will put me approximatly 10 miles away which I plan to hike early saturday morning. It feels good to finnally finish Virginia as we were there for around 5 weeks. Now we should feel progress as we knock down state after state. Both West Virginia and Maryland are relatively quick states to hike through. My moral is high amongst me and close hiking friends, although there are many through hikers who are throwing in the towel.  Game on!~Pressure D
