No mice at the shelter last night. All traps made it through with all of their peanut butter.
Started the day with a walk around the lake…it was quite beautiful as the sun was coming up. We saw geese on the lake.
Went up and down a mountain and took a side trail into town. After picking up our maildrop, we went to the Pizza Plus for the pizza buffet. It redeemed itself from our last pizza from that place. The service was excellent and the guy there made the pizza that we wanted and put it in the buffet. Being at the buffet, we lost a bit of motivation to go much further for the day.
We decided to head to the Kincora Hostel, run by trail legend Bob Peoples. We met 5 southbounders there that we had not met before, as well as Buzz Lightyear, whom we had met in the Shenandoah National Park.
Sweet Pea happened to be the guidance counselor for one of the southbound thru-hikers when he had been a freshman in high school! Small world!
