On the way to trail, I stumbled upon a an old-fashioned car show. Most of the attendants at the show scoffed at my non-combustion engine contraption between my legs; however, it didn't stop me from admiring their beautiful peaces of machinery. After staring at antiquated shiny automobiles, I headed onto the trail and saw many beautiful scenic overlooks and spooked some deer from time to time. After arriving back to my site, I hung out and got to know the very friendly Steffey family (Brian, Karen, Kathleen, & Benjamin). They let me borrow their cell phone to ring Greg and Jonathan when they were running late and offered for me to stay for dinner. I would have gladly accepted, but finally the Ohio boys arrived and we took a walk down to the local restaurant for a later dinner.
As we began to wind down after several hours of conversation/catching up, I warned Jonathan that I needed to make up this lost time and he said he was "game." Tomorrow looks to be the last of serious Appalachian mountains we'll face, so it'll be a good test for him. I hope to make it into Hindman by lunch time, but we shall see how that goes. Good night and remember to brush your teeth!!!
