Ascent Trip Report

DAY #32
Heavy rain during the evening. Good nights sleep in a bed. Took buprofin to see if it will reduce pain in my right knee.
Shelly shuttled me to Indian Grave gap after breakfast at McDonalds in mid-morning for a sb AT hike. Mostly downhill. Met Maria nb just past Curley shelter, she wanted to know the details of the Soprano's last 4-5 episodes.
Back to the hostel at 14h00 hours, Shelly shuttle a number of hikers to town, completed all of my errands. Called Rose, discussed the July 1st trip to Michael's ...... Tim and Julie will join us. Michael, Marcus and I will participate in the Peachtree race on the 4th.
