Ascent Trip Report

Hiked all day with Chris, from San Antonio, Texas, for an uneventful easy day, not much conversation (a nice guy, invited me to his house if ever thru there)) - he is stronger than I on the uphill (these days I am slow and do a lot of huffing and puffing on the uphills ..... old age I guess ), but not on the rest of the trail.
15h15 - We arrived at Denis Cove road (day's end) , Chris went to Kincora Hostel and tomorrow he'll move on. I hitched a ride to Braemar Castle Hostel in Hampton, TN - owned by Sutton and Bev Brown (his grandfather acquired it in 1920). I will stay here 2 nights, tomorrow I'll do an afternoon hike after my usual errands in the AM, and come back here.
Bev let me use her washer/dryer and Sutton shuttled me to the TH, nice people and good place for hikers, however Hampton is spread out and a lot of walking is required for your services, not the best of place for a restful stay. Feeling good
