Yesterday was so full of excitement that we didn’t have time to get our normal town chores done. So, we went to the laundromat, went by the outfitter and got a new pair of shoes AND a goretex jacket on clearance (woohoo). Then Comet called and said there was an all you can eat chinese place in Abingdon, so I went to eat about 2pm. We had such a good time hanging out…an old lady at the next table walked up to Comet and said “is this your son or your grandson? I am having such a good time just watching you two talk to each other”. The short hair strikes again!
As a disappointment to hikers everywhere, I only ate one plate of delicious Chinese food (it was piled super high, though). Stopped at cvs and got a new knee brace…then back to Damascus. I did another load of laundry, then limped back to the room.
