12 April 2014 (Day 38) – I’m eating a late lunch at a roadside restaurant called The Barn. In this section of Virginia, the trail runs parallel to Interstate 81 and every now and then comes close enough to take advantage of highway interchange amenities (restaurants, gas stations, motels). The Barn offers a hiker special burger – 16 oz angus burger with cheese and bacon. Dessert special is peach cobbler with ice cream. This will see me through to dinner in a few hours.
In 3 miles, I will have completed 1/4 of the trail. Woot!
