Ascent Trip Report

Day #109 - HUGS & KISSES
Left the cabin very excited under heavily overcast sky, after blueberry pancakes, tipped Kevin, the caretaker. I was really anxious to meet up w Rose, Dalton, MA9, Main st - concerned that she might have had problems on her drive to Dalton. Had about 1/2 hour of light rain at mid-day, no poncho. I teared somewhat as I thought about Rose throughout the day.
Arrived Dalton at 16h45 hours. Descending the last hill "Day Mountain" something told me that Rose would be at the bottom (Depot Road) & not at Main Street. - I hollered "yo Rose" a number of times !!! to my surprise, finally I hear a faint "Beeen" !!! Rushed to an emotional warm reunion with "hugs & kisses" and of course lots of tears. As usual she had drinks and food.
We went to Shamrock Village Inn for the night, looking forward to tomorrow's last day on the AT.
