We took our first days off since Hot Springs, NC, over 700 miles ago. We slept, ate, visited Shenandoah, ate, slept, ate, napped, ate, visited Anteitam National Battlefield, ate and slept. We were so grateful for the Howells hospitality and willingness to take us off the trail and to give us a few days of needed rest. As an added perk, they brought along Joe’s two chocolate labs for the visit and brought our Harper’s Ferry mail drop for us to sort through. Thank you Howells!
