Yesterday morning “Birdscope” and his sons, Eduardo and Ricardo, started their section hike at Trumbo Hollow trailhead near Linden, VA. An experienced hiker his goal is to reach The Priest in 10 days.
“Birdscope” has hiked sections of the AT, PCT, and the Florida Trail. When I dropped them off, they were excited, especially about hiking through Shenandoah National Park and tackling The Priest.
“Stanimal” will pick them up late next week and take them to Herndon so they can catch their flight back to Brazil. I’ll provide pictures and updates on their trek when I receive them.
