Nimblewill, GA

We are getting a later start than expected due to Tom needing a medical test to check for gall stones on Monday, the planned start date from Mt. Katahdin. The test came out clear, so it's off to Maine tomorrow. We should do the assault on Katahdin on Friday, June 11.

On Saturday, we climbed Springer Mountain from the house here via the buried phone and cable path to the Len Foote Hike Inn. It was a 10 miler with about 2700 feet of climb, our practise for the first day in Maine.

Next report from Baxter State Park, Millinocket, Maine.

Next entry: June 13 Rainbow Lake
