Hiked to Vandeventer Shelter today. Expecting rain tonight and 90% chance of rain tomorrow. Good thing I’m in no rush to Damascus at this point. There’s four guys here who are hilariously funny. Who needs TV? It was ladies night at Kincora shelter last night, just four of us in the hostel. It was relaxing. Hiked with Pandora most of the day today, just a relaxing day on the trail. There’s been a virus going around that’s been affecting hikers. It seems to have originated in Erwin, TN. 48 hours of vomiting and diarrhea. The health department has been interviewing hikers and handing out stool sample kits at the hostels. I’ve been lucky and haven’t gotten it. I seem to have stayed ahead of it. Hope my luck holds up.
