Ascent Trip Report

YESTERDAY, DAY #8 - ZERO DAY, HIAWASSEE, GA, HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS.
I haven't been shaving and my beard is starting to fill in, I trimmed it today. I really don't like it however I promised my Atlanta grandchildren, that I would grow one .... I look like a real old man & I don't like it. I'm going to shave it off in Gatlinburg, once my grandchildren see it.
Usual errands, lunched w Chris, Pam & Wren after which they left for the T.
In the late afternoon, I got a super LOWER BODY MASSAGE (46$), from Terry - she uses oil & heated round river rocks. I got picked up at the hotel by her husband, John ! ! ! It would be amazing to get a massage after every hike ! ! !

At hiwassee, GA, HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS, I took their shuttle (16$) to dicks creek gap TH. A roller coaster type day, an easy to moderate Trail, numerous stops, found it hard.

CROSSED INTO NC, 1/4M BEFORE BLY GAP, OLD TREE, where I had a long lunch break, beautifull spot.

Hiked half of the day w James & Papa Joe, a macon GA couple out for a few days, overnighted w us at muskrat creek shelter. Soup, pasta & tuna dinner.
