Talked with Ruth again and they were still in Daleville for the second day.

Yes, two days in town and living in the Ecconno shelter gave them time to resupply, really rest up, and plan the attack on the trail for this week. Then they would slackpack to a place called Bear Wallowo Gap, 735 miles now and be on the trail again. Where the Heck is Bear Wallowo Gap? Well, get out your road map for Virginia and find I-81, move down towards Roanoke, just before Roanoke find Buchanan. Bear Wallowo Gap is 4.4 miles south of town on the red dotted line which is the A T. Now you know.

  1. Bearwallow Gap is listed in the AT Companion as the intersection of the AT with VA 43.

    The AT Distance Calculator reports that VA43-Mile 90.9 BRP, VA, is 735.6 miles from Springer.

    This would be a 21.7 mile day-hike.
