Day 5

Much nicer day than yesterday. Not as many hills and much more dirt than stone.
There were only nine miles instead of 10. The day was overcast until about 3PM.
We were walking in the fog through leafless trees silouted against the gray. We
got some real great photos and made it to the shelter at 4PM. We had plenty of
time to pull all the tent stuff out and let it dry. Plenty of time to cook and
enjoy dinner while the sun was up. We still have about an hour of light left and
I'm sitting at a bench in front of the shelter cathcing up on yesterday and
today's journal entries. We are getting stronger every day and CC's ability to
consume more than her normal food portions is getting better also. We have contacted
our daughter and are having her add food to our boxes, as the original amounts
are not big enough. Yesterday it took us over 10 hours to do 10 miles. Today we
did nine miles in six hours. First drop will be on Friday in Linden, VA and packs
are getting lighter with each meal.
