Things that keep me from Blogging Part 2 TRAIL DAYS

Trail days is soo much fun! this is our 2nd year, and I think it was more crowded than last for sure! The weather was beautiful, we started off at about 11am. By then, people were already parked up at our house, which is about 1/3 mile from the hub of the activity. All the hikers off of the AT come into town this weekend and camp out and there are lots of events going on. Thursday we were fortunate enough to attend a storytelling event with an internationally recognized Appalachian Storyteller. IT was great! The kids loved the funny tales and spooky ghost stories. On Sat morning, we enjoyed feasting in town, going to the library book sale and some face painting. We ended the revelry with the hiker's parade, throwing water balloons at all the hikers! It was really tons of fun!

Oh, and this guy.....a good friend from junior high! We haven't seen eachother for 14 years, and here he shows up in my little mountain town! We had he and is wife over for dinner, and shared stories until they were ready to head off on the trail again! They have hiked approx 250 of the 2,200 miles on the Appalachian Trail, and are planning to keep on hiking, likely through October. Good luck Millwaters!
