5/12 iPhone returned!  The post office misplaced my package so I 
missed my shuttle and had to stay in pearisburg another day.

5/13 hiked 16 miles.  Met up with nobody at lunch time. I haven't 
hiked with him since leaving Hot Springs NC.

5/14 hiked 22 miles.  What a long day.  Hiked from 8am till 9pm.   
There were several old abandoned houses along the way kinda creepy.   
We hiked by the Keffer oak.  It's the 2nd largest tree on the AT.   
Creepy left me and Nobody some trail magic.  Cold sodas and apples.   
We also hiked by the Audy Murphy Memorial.  He died in a plane crash 
on the mountain we were climbing.  We had to hike really fast the last 
10 miles there was a thunder storm chasing us off the mountain.

5/15 hiked 16 miles.  Me and nobody started off the day hiking over 
dragons tooth. Then we stopped at a gas station for lunch. Gas station 
pizza never tasted so good.  We hiked a little more then we hitched 
into town to a all u can eat for supper. We were walking back to the 
road and got picked up before we even tried to hitch.
After dinner we had to climb up to Macfee's knob.  Hung out there for 
a while with nobody, zen and devo. What a cool place and amazing views.

5/16- 17short day hiked into daleville and got a room with nobody and 
creepy.  It rained so we zero'd.

5/18 20 mile slack pack.  So we (me Nobody, Devo, Zen and thier dog 
Loki. hired a shuttle to drive us 20 miles north up the trail. Then we 
hiked back to the motel.  You leave most of your gear at the hotel and 
only carry lunch and snacks.  It makes it so much easier.  Bought new 
boots and my feet were killing me.  Met up with braids and on the 
loose on the side of the trail. haven't seen them since Damacus
