woke up and packed, ate breakfast and settled up with the hostal then shuttled off to kinsmans notch to start the day. did weigh my pack....44.74 lbs.
this was the most technical hiking I have done! had to use 3, 4, sometimes 5 points of contact to get up the next part of the trail. roots, rocks, bolders with a mud pit or two for good measure. even got stuck in the mud up to my calf muscle once (see pic).

still hiking with 50+...we make a good team, but he does hike a bit faster than I do.

nice shelter here with good water source. a bit buggy...but 50 is starting a fire to drive some of the bugs away (we hope).campfire ashes in fire.

7:40
three more hikers are now here. two staying in the shelter, one tenting even though it is threatening rain. wasnt very hungry so just had some plain spagettie and a snickers bar for dinner...just filled up on real food I guess. the bugs did ho away with the but I do have a new hole in my pants from a cinder.

rained most of the night. made getting of camp hard since the brook we had to cross was now much larger. the hike, technical once again were made harder by the stream of water on rhe trail. made it to south kinsman mountain, no view. on the way to the south peak, it poured! got my rain coat and packcover but still soaked. got to kinsman pond shelter for a break, ring out the cloths and a hot lunch. sun peaking out once in a while, but black flies a constant.

10pm
the hike to lonesome lake was just as hard, but no rain, just streams were trail should be. the hut was neat, I wish we planed it so we could stay there but no, after pics, oatmeal (offered for free) and some rest it was off we went.

had to cross a number of very swollen brooks...peobably the most dangerous hiking I have done thus far. didnt fall there but did slip on a rock and fell pretty hard. between that and very sore knees, it is definitly an ibuprofen night.

got to road right when it started raining again. saw a couple moving to there car and asked them it they could give us a lift to Lincoln. they did. a nice couple from Nove Scocia (sp) canada took us right to Chett's hostal. as promissed my fooddrop was here. had pizza for dinner, washes, and more importantly+ dried cloths (socks) and now to bed!

5:15pm
today I almost gave up and almost stayed at galehead hut. but one of the workers (Emily) told me that once I got up the hill out of that hut, it would be fairly easy hiking and she was right. i was actually able to hike, instead of rockclimb, most of the way.

7:15pm
wonderful dinner of bread, black bean soup, salad, dijon mustard chicken and chocolate cake. I even ate the soup and salad. started raining after dinner...so nice to be inside for it. was able to thank the amc worker from the other hut....she really works here, was just filling in there earlier in the day.

8:05
getting back to the "almost giving up". the last few days have been some of the most dificult, mountanous and technically challanging hiking I have ever done and it has taken a toll. they say you will slow down by half in the whites, but I have been doing more (from 8's to 9's and 10's). we (50+ and I) have decided to slow down to 5's for the next few day...if we can get the huts we want on sun-tue (we know sat would be impossible since the huts are almost always filled on weekends). but if it goes as planned it should give me time to build up my reserves.

besides fatigue, my feet have been paying the toll for the wet boots. a bashed little toe and at least one blister. did first aid on both.
