Last night I stayed at a hostel in Damascus called the Hikers Inn. The owners thru-hiked in 2009, came through town, saw the place was for sale, purchased it and moved from Charlotte. I was in the bunk house room with a father and his two daughters. I had to turn on the air conditioning g to s town out his snoring. This morning I stopped at Mojo's for a soy latte, bagel and peanut butter. Getting ready to head out on the trail which bi-sects town.
Yesterday I stocked up on snacks for the trail and found a couple of good vegan dinner options at an outfitter in town.
I also decided to buy a quilt and give away my sleeping bag to save weight.
