4/26 Day 40

We hiked in the rain and fog today. With constant rain overnight, much of the trail was flooded. We hadn’t planned to stay in Pearisburg  overnight but we were soaked and freezing and opted to take a local motel up on their hiker discount. We weren’t the only ones running this way as close to fifteen other hikers opted to stay in town. We went to the post office, grocery store and Chinese buffet. The woman at the motel office offered to do our laundry and we joined a group of hikers at the Mexican restaurant for dinner. We only hiked 8.2 miles but left town with dry gear and a full resupply.
