Day 12 Wytheville to Damascus

Today was another challenging cycling day with lots of hills and NO RAIN but really COLD in the low fifties. Not what I expected at all. We had a great lunch at a little diner in Stockdale county where we chatted to the local Sheriff who not only allowed us to take photographs but escorted us out of town. Tonight we are staying on a campsite by the river at Damascus which is on the Appalachian trail and full of hikers. After tonights meal we had a surplus of Jill's spicy goulash so Ellen and I had this idea to walk around the campsite and offer it to any hikers we found eating tins of cold soup. I seem to be doing lots of crazy things like this but it sure is a great way to meet real American people. Only a couple of days now before we cross the State line into Kentucky and tomorrow we have a much needed rest day. And Ken you will be happy to know that I have found proper sausages and had a half decent cup of English tea today.
