Reality check

Sitting on the ridge overlooking the James River Valley. Word is that there's no signal down there. No one else on the Trail today.

After checking my net food inventory -- packed out of BV plus resupply -- and comparing it with my reduced estimates of how many miles I can do in this terrain and weather, I am planning to drop off trail again on Saturday. The climbs south of the James River look like more than I can enjoy until the afternoons cool off or I can improve my stamina, so I will be thinking about shuttling south to Daleville and moving on from there toward Tinker Cliffs and McAfee Knob.  Either that, or overnight in Glasgow, resupply and reset.

Of ten days out now, I have zeroed four. Hmmpf.
