Why are they at a gas station?

Also noticed the GoPros mounted on the hood and side. Based on the muddiness, they must be making some fun videos.

A quick Google search turned up that Cowboys Food Mart in Damascus Virginia.

111 Douglas Dr, Damascus, VA 24236

It is near the Mount Rogers National Recreation Area.

Edit: Actually it looks like there are other parks closer than Mount Rogers. They could have been at several different ones.

I was about to say, looks Tennessee-ish. What with the recent announcement and all.

I think this is VA. The sign that says "In Memory of Nancy Minnick Gray" is for someone from Abingdon, VA. Thats only 22 minutes away. There are quite a few Elizabeth Widener's as well, but there is one from Damascus, VA.

So, Id say you got the correct location.

He's a man of mystery.
We've figured it out. He is one of the Rivian employees that secretly watches the forum. The source has been revealed!

ICE only :(
Damascus, VA is somewhat well known to through-hikers in the east. The Appalachian Trail passes right through town, and it's one of the few towns in the South that has that. It's a common place for people who aren't doing the full Springer-Katahdin to start or end because getting a ride is simpler.

Edit: And when I say it goes right through town, I mean the trail is literally right down the street you see in those Rivian photos.

Damascus is also home to a wonderful 100 mile race. My first :) So exciting to see them, if not close to my home, in someplace close to my heart!

My daughter and I have done a few backpacking trips up around Mt. Rogers/Grayson Highlands. Beautiful part of the country! Glad to see they're getting closer to TN.
