It wouldn’t be a day of traveling on the trail with out something unexpected happening. While I was in the library in Front Royal writing the last blog post on our site, I left my headlights on. For about three hours I sat in the library working away, talking with our friend Bonzo we were meeting up with, completely unaware that my battery was slowly dying outside. Thank goodness Bonzo and I hadn’t really agreed on a place to meet and when I called him he was only minutes from the library. When he arrived I hopped in, turned the...

All is still well with Buddy Backpacker and crew. When we last left off, we were spending our last night with Bill, the journalist from Backpacker Magazine. We were really excited to get to do this article with him and hope that we have given him enough info on the trail  and about our hike for him to write a fantastic article.

I just checked the forecast and although there is a slight chance of rain one day and another day will be...

For the past few days we have had the extreme privilege of staying with the amazing Thomas family in Marion VA while we are reading ourselves to do the Shenandoah’s.  We just love hanging out with this family, they are amazing and we are so thankful to have met them! We are trying to find a way to pack everything up into our Jeep from Christmas and part with the warm bed and delicious food. We are going to be heading out from Marion this afternoon to begin the Shenandoah’s first thing tomorrow morning. We have planned to finish our...
