Lowlight of the Week

Jerry: Not sleeping well in the Clyde Smith shelter due to being cold and having to get up about 4 times.

Bennett: This week I had my worst night of hammock sleeping on the AT so far. The wind was so extreme it just stole all my heat and I spent the whole night shivering through my under quilt and overbuilt. Definitely could have used a nap the next day

Karen: Taxes.

Memory of the Week

Jerry: Going over Roan Mountain with Tandem after we hiked it about 10 years ago with the Savinis.

Bennett: Had a great time holing up inside Uncle Johnny’s hostel when the snow came. Watched VHS versions of You’ve Got Mail & The Terminal. Also played Spades with the other hikers.

Karen: Going to a Pure Hell Barre class with a friend and then out to have wine after.
