Dedicated Nuts! Princess here reporting because everyone else in my house has lost all sanity. This morning, in two vehicles, Walker, Whiskers, Rocket and I left home just after 7 a.m. to drive over one hour in the pouring rain to drop off one vehicle (Walker’s truck) in the parking lot at Dragon’s Tooth. There was only one other car in the lot with a guy sitting in it whom we all deemed sketchy. So sketchy that we wrote down his license plate number and a description of his car in case the truck wasn’t there when they return. Or, the truck, but no wheels…you get the idea. All in one car now, we proceeded on another 30 minutes down winding country roads through rain, lightning and thunder so I could I dump leave them in Newport where I had met Walker Sunday evening – the same place where Walker picked Whiskers and Rocket up yesterday. They were excited?! to walk 26 miles today with only their day packs. Despite out best efforts to dry them overnight, Whisker’s and Rocket’s shoes were still wet this morning. I felt bad for them, but I guess it didn’t really matter as they would have been wet again in short time.
It’s been in the 50’s here today with rain most of the day. I heard on the radio that the schools in the county they are hiking in closed early because of the rain. I expect they will be home late this evening. There’s a pot of vegetarian chili waiting for them and a pound cake in the oven. I also made pimento cheese for their lunch tomorrow; figured it’s time to show these New Englanders some real southern hospitality!
