Hightop Hut, Va 22 Miles Hiked Today 883 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Bear pole with lots of treats21 miles of pretty boring hiking. Two crappy things happened.  First, the campground where we planned to eat was closed, as was everything else at that wayside. Plus, the payphone wouldn't work properly. Second, I began chafing this afternoon, and the usual trick, going "commando," didn't work. It just shifted the chafing area. I'll be hitting the baby powder and anything else I can get hand on. I can't hike if I can't move my legs. Maybe I will wear a skirt.
