There were five of us that slack packed south from Kinsman Notch to Glencliff today. Dry Clean, Llano, Hopper, a section hiker and myself. The section hiker took off as soon as we got dropped off and the rest of us remained together the rest of the day. The first 1.5 mile to Beaver Brook Shelter was a real pain because it was steep. I was out of breath, weak and just could not get my mojo this morning. Prior to the shelter I ran into Puck who has been carrying a hockey stick as a walking stick for his thru hike. I also ran into Bluegrass and Big R. Bluegrass told me he recognized my name from the registers and because he was hiking with Gypc Girl for a while. He said that whenever Gypc Girl saw my name in a registry she pointed it out to him and said she would like to catch up to me. He told me that she was about three days ahead of him right now. When we got to the shelter I laid down and relaxed while the other three talked to a day hiker that was at the shelter. I also ate a peanut butter whoopee pie I bought the day before. When we headed out from the shelter I felt a little better and the climb was not as steep. It was still about 2.5 or so to the summit of Mt Moosilauke. When we got to the summit there were half a dozen day hikers up there. A few of them asked where we came from and when we told them Georgia the questions started rolling in. After the day hikers left we took our summit photos and sat at the summit for about an hour eating lunch and relaxing.

The descent was not as steep as the climb up but it was a lot longer. It took a toll on my knees today. During our southbound slack today we ran into Moment, Chickadee, Colonel, Crazy Fox, Pierre, Vegan, Special Needs, Giggles, LB, Skidmark, Weasel, Studmuffin, Tigerwoods.

When we got back to the hostel we went to the store to get some things for dinner. I got some chicken to cook on the grill and some baked beans. I walked into the common room and saw G Hippie sitting there so we caught up on things. It had been a long time since I had seen him.

Just before dust Dancing Wind and Indiana walked in and it was Dancing Winds birthday and Loon and Eastwind had gotten a watermelon and stuck candles in it for her and we all sang happy birthday to her. Today was also Swift’s birthday who was at the hostel.

I was able to log onto facebook tonight and it seemed like everyone wanted to chat with me. If felt good to hear from everyone.

Here tonight are G Hippie, Deadman Walking, Indiana, Dancing Wind, Loon, Eastwind.

Note: I also think Swift and Tigerlily were here for the night.
