I’ve made it to Marion, a town a few miles off the trail, but with a stellar public transportation system with hikers in mind! One phone call and 50 cents gets you a ride into town for food, laundry or a hotel. With two days of rain behind us and two more forecast, I’m in a dry hotel for the night. At this point I’m 530 miles down the trail in 60 days. Not exactly a land speed record, but I’m moving! Only 1,655 miles more to go!
BTW, Marion will have their first annual Hiker’s Celebration May 24-26 at Riverbend Park.
