I got into Chester thanks to a friendly hitch from a local. I hit the Dollar General, resupplied as healthily as possible (which wasn’t much), and then headed to the church. After meeting a couple of new people I headed to the Holiday Market for some beer and then the Pine Shack Frosty for a burger and jumbo milkshake. Now, this was more of a McFlurry/Blizzard than a milkshake, but it was still 32 oz. and delicious. I could have done another easily.
Chester is a quaint “main street” town but it has all the amenities I need. I’m hitting a solid breakfast in the morning and then getting back on trail to do 20ish miles.
