Made it to Damascus

Made it to Damascus VA. That is a high point of the Trail as the Trail actually goes right through town and is very “hiker friendly”. In two weeks the biggest hiker celebration happens here. Supposedly about 8000 people descend upon this small town for “Trail Days”. Vendors, gear suppliers and free spirits congregate for days. We are going to gorge on town food and camp at the Broken Fiddle Hostel tonight. Also going to mail some weight home; jacket, gloves, cap and my 4 year old backpack. I bought a new Osprey that is 2 1/4 pounds lighter. It is awesome!!
