Our sons, Jack & Mark, should be overnighting in Connecticut tonight after spending some time with their friend Joe.
(Sherry’s boys, last Mother’s day!)
I am excited that Mark will hike with us old men on the trail. Jack will stay here with his Mom. We have some extract plans if anything untoward should happen. Jack will be able to help his mom negotiate the rough logging trail to get back to us.
It would be good if we could average 10 miles a day hiking. But that will not be the first day tough. The first day will be about 5-6 miles because we will start late. It is over a hundred miles to the trail head from Bangor, so it will be a short day on the trail.
Will had some scheduling conflicts, but Fred and Gordon will be flying in on the 4th and if they feel like it, we will hike on the 5th. If not we will wait until the 6th to let them recoup from the flight. The flight isn’t that long, but the total time is near 12 hours, with layovers and the time you must be at the airport anymore before a flight. And these old men may need the rest! LOL
Either way the adventure is in sight. I just hope I am up for the mountains we will encounter. I think there are about 8 peaks to climb, some very steep. But they say the views are fantastic.
We are hoping for a few nights around a campfire, with some good stories of life in Africa and also adventures other places. Fred also spent a lot of time in Guyana, wen I say that I cannot help but remember the infamous Jim Jones.
Sherry just got a call from Mark. They are on Broadway in NYC!!!! Trying to avoid tolls. LOL That is a southern thing, we hate tolls down south, but like it or not we have some and are getting more. There is one going up near our little town of Belmont. Folks have fought it tooth and nail, but she's a commin’.
The boys seem happy with their trip, we are too. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment, so we are.
Thanks for coming this way.
