Pappy's brother met us at the first "exit" for Pearisburg and gave us honey buns and Gatorade...yum! We piled into his mini van, said goodbye to Freight Train at the Dairy Queen, and stopped at the post office to pick up what I expected would be my new backpack. The lady brought out an REI package and by the size of the box I could tell there had been a mistake...aaaand there had been. Instead of sending me the Flash 65, I received the Flash 18...don't think I can fit all of my junk in an 18 liter pack!! Or maybe I will just go ultralight..? I will call REI tomorrow and hopefully get it all worked out.
We got to Greg and Bonnie's house and showered (two showers in two days?!) and they cooked us a delicious dinner of barbecued chicken, baked potatoes, corn, and cake for dessert. Bonnie made cookies so we've been snacking on those as well, and then we had nachos for a late night snack. So good! We play cards for awhile and decided to hit the sack as it's late and we're all worn out. We're zeroing tomorrow...always an exciting thing!
