04 September 2010, Lakes of the Clouds
It was extremely windy today. I put on my long john shirt and my hiking shirt over the top of that. I also put on my convertible pants on with the legs attached. With my rain coat on to fight off the wind and off we went. The wind gusts were pretty constant so all I had to do was lean into the wind most of the day. Every once and a while the wind would suddenly stop and catch me off guard and I would lose my balance and start doing a run forward to right myself before I fell forward.

When we got to the Lake of the Clouds Hut I ran into Freeman and his dog Damascus. I thought they were weeks in front of me. He said that he had gotten off the trail because he got giardia and just got back on a week ago. He left about 1/2 hour after we arrived. Shadow, T-Rex, and Mandurkin were also sitting here in the hut waiting for this evening so they could do work for stay.

I went for a short walk before dinner tonight up a little on the trail south just to get away from Hopper and her attitude she was having.

The dinner tonight was beyond belief. They started with vegetable soup and salad. The main course was mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, peas, and turkey. It was just like Thanksgiving. The desert was moca cake with topping. I never in my wildest dreams thought they would serve something like this in a remote hut. We got our money’s worth tonight.

Tonight for thru hikers are, Forest, Giant, Chef, Shadow, Pebbles, SK’Rabbit, DB, Puma. Timon, Lefty, T-Rex, and Mandurkin.
