Trail Days

Trail days was quite the experience. Think hometown fair meets clinic. There were vendors in the park, of all sorts, not just gear. There was fair food, which, oddly enough I didn’t eat and even pony rides. A mile out of downtown Damascus was a place called Tent City. You paid $5 to go there and tent and if you did, sleep was not what you were looking for. There were other gear vendors there offering loads of free stuff.

In town, the church offered free food for most of the days and doctor checkups. I cannot forget to mention the free foot wash and foot massages. I think I am now converted.

There were loads of events including a talent show, contra dancing, AT movie screenings and the famous hiker parade.

Definitely a worthwhile detour, even if it meant that I fell behind my Wolfpack.
