James is hiking the last 10 miles today to the base of the last mountain to climb – Katahdin. He is weary as the weather has made his journey so difficult. The past week has been rain and wind and cold – freezing at night. He was elated on the 1stglimpse of Katahdin. I will fly out early tomorrow morning to meet him before he climbs Katahdin. Katahdin is a very difficult climb, he plans to climb on Tuesday if allowed to by the rangers. Katahdin has been closed for 2 days because of high winds.
His dream has become a reality, and I am so proud of him.
We will drive home, enjoying the fall foliage and each other. We plan to be back to Wilmington on Saturday Oct 4.
Thank you all for your support during these last 7 months.
