Journal Entry # 146

Sunday, August 21 - Day 150 - Mile 1782.5 - Glencliff, NH

Great night with Jerry & Jan.  Dinner was delicious and we had breakfast to look forward to before our hike  The lodge was just what you would think of in the north woods. Built in the late 30's of huge logs,  it's situated in the woods overlooking Mt. Moosilauke.

The day started with a forecast of violent weather in the afternoon so we were glad we had a short hike today to the hostel.

Jerry delivered our stuff to the hostel before breakfast so we were set for the day to slack pack once more.
Breakfast at the lodge was great with plenty of coffee, juice, oatmeal, eggs, sausage and muffins.  Then we took the leftover bananas and cookies from Jan for our morning break.

I thought I had lost my head bandana but Jerry stopped at the ice cream shop we visited last afternoon to check if I left it there and sure enough Jan found it.  It was good to see my old friend!

Our hike was beautiful and the trail fairly easy. We met Double Check as Jerry & Jan dropped us off at the trailhead. We enjoyed hiking with him and learning a bit about him.

We arrived at the hostel about 2:00 PM and were greeted by Miss Janet who offered to shuttle us and slack pack us. Hopefully that will work out.  We're having dinner with her tonight.

About 3:00 the storm hit with a vengeance.  A group of hikers came in to the shelter about 4:30 soaking wet. They were caught on Mt. Moosilauke slack packing today.

Once again we were save, sound and dry at the hostel.

It's now about 5:30 and the sun is out again.  More rain is expected so We'll wait to see what tomorrow brings before we commit to the slack pack.

Once more, a perfect day on the Appalachian Trail for the L.E.G.

Love, peace, joy & hope,
