While I was eating lunch today, Gary called and said he had just crossed I-77. He is walking 19 miles today and staying at his 599th mile, at the Jenny Knob Shelter. He is doing wonderful!!!
One of his fellow travelers burnt his knee and is in the hospital tonight. They are going down to get him tomorrow and possibly stay in a hotel a night. I am glad they are close enough to take care of each other. From what I hear these are life long, lasting friendships being made here.
