Our car GPS led to a wrong point, until google maps got it right. The extra drive was very interesting - into the wildish road at night. Everyone was vigilant & curious of what was to come & were we heading in the right direction or not! Add to it, the b&b owner didn't pick our calls.

... a bed at their hostel, but they were full. I called around, and everywhere was actually full. I was sad, because that meant I had to hammock after walking so far, but at least I was still in town and I could grab a shower at the hostel where I set up my hammock. I walked to a Mexican restaurant that came highly recommended, and it turned out that a lot of people I knew were already there like Yellow Bird, Lightning, Fireball, and even Smokescreen, who I hadn't seen in a while, so it was ...
... Lake and invited us over to eat and play kickball. We stayed there a while (probably longer than we should have) and had to headlamp into camp that night it was totally worth it. I've been really amazed by the random acts of kindness I've received on the trail. Genuine kindness like this help make the miles that much more enjoyable. I love being able to wake up in a new ...
... a bit of a sense of how steep that is in the last picture. The track goes right up to the black line below the seats.
The track is famous as the loudest venue on the NASCAR circuit. It has been likened to "flying fighter jets in a gymnasium".
