We finished the "Roller Coaster" pretty early, and weren't terribly impressed. Honestly, if they hadn't named it we probably wouldn't have even noticed. Oh, well, onward to easy trail!
Not much to tell today I suppose. We stopped in at Dick's Dome Shelter for a break. It was really oddly shaped, small and almost spherical, not super efficient with space. Later on at Manassas Gap there were a bunch of section hikers staying. A couple had some little 1oz Captain
Morgan bottles, and since they are going home tomorrow they gave 'em to us to spice up our lemonade. We also met Tim and Christine who are hiking to the end of VA. Tim is from New Zealand and we talked about rugby and stuff. They are cool people so hopefully we'll see them further down trail.
