Day 106

Day 106

Last Call Jun 9th, 2022
Last Call's 2022 AT Thru-Hike

If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have stopped at Route 11 to stop at a hotel with only gas stations as resupplies on streets with “no pedestrian” signs. I was happy to be off that crazy road and back into the woods. The first half of the day was more farmland with some road walking and then into the woods and by the end, crazy rocks; ankle breaking rocks. I was going to stay at the last shelter before Duncannon and then do a short day getting in and then out of Duncannon but plans changed. A guy by the name of Zipper lives here and invited me to dinner with his family and then to stay in his home. I took him up with the offer, hiked on to Duncannon and we all had dinner in famous Doyle Hotel. It has a new owner and they’re fixing up the old rundown hotel. There’s still some growing pains but the food was good and I enjoyed a couple beers. The bar had been completely redone. I greatly appreciate Zipper inviting me to his home. His wife is sweet as is his daughter whom I got to meet. Zipper is about a day ahead of me so it’s so nice of them to take me in and then going to drop me off back in town again so I can check out the outfitter and then continuing hiking from there.
