Ascent Trip Report

Day #60
Met up w Mike, told me about "trail angel" at Thunder Hill shelter, pepsis/cookies, which I missed.
Super long foot bridge, across the wide James River, out at us 501 (15:15 hrs), hitched ride to Glasgow, Tired Feet Motel. Celine's scarpa package had arrived yesterday, immediately changed boots, put my wet Limmers in the same package and rushed directly to the Post Office with 15 min to closing time.
Usual errands, called Rose while at the laundry w Mike's cell. Running around doing errands is harder than hiking the AT. What one should have is a full time support crew ..... this rushing, afraid to be behind is very stressful, especially if you are me.
