Ascent Trip ReportI am doing the 52WAV & Randy wanted a few caches.So today we decided to hit Mt Success .280 miles later we both accomplished what we wanted.
Started the day driving all the way up to Berlin & down Success pond rd.ZGot to TH & started our hike around 9. The start of the day had us both huffing & puffing & sweating our asses off .It was warm & muggy & overcast. We hit the outlook & as we were leaving we felt a few rain drops but that was it & weather got better.
Saw 3 guys at summit of Success doing the AT North Bound. 1 of them wasn't feeling good & asked if we'd give him a ride ..We said we would when we got back to our car & he could wait for us.But when we got back he left us a note saying thanks for the offer but got a ride from another guy.
After the summit we went for the plane crash .Unbelievable people survived this took a few pics & headed down & met another NOBO AT hiker.Hiked with her till our trail wished her lck & headed down back to our car.
Felt good to be back out in the mtns .A great hike ..Thanks Randy for the company I had a blast
