End of hike for me

Didn't rain last night but lots of condensation! Tent is soaked, bag is damp. I figure I can make the 12.15 bus if I leave at 7.30. There were a couple log bridges and streamlets but no major obstacles on the trail. And not long after I started, Aaron Robinson from the local trail crew met me with an orange and other goodies and offered to carry me or my pack the rest of the way. I believe he could have done it too! I let him carry my wet tent but I may as well walk the rest of the way! I just won't get to Canada this year. 89 miles short! Oh well, its been an awesome summer and I don't regret one bit of it! Lori Thompson met us shortly afterward with an apple even more treats! We found mushrooms and they told me the names of some of them. They were great company and it was fun to talk with them. I stopped a couple times to eat out of their delicious food bags but I still got to the bridge in time to see the bus leave. Of course it didn't matter now. Aaron have me a ride. Lori left is a couple beers and went back to work. And glow worm and detour were waiting for me before hiking out. Glow worm was so sweet, he brought me a brownie from the bakery since he figured I wouldn't get to stop. Six and spiff left me a postcard from lake aloha and a gift card for dinner at the restaurant! Vegimatic and MC tall are in town and we're gonna meet for dinner at six. The lake is beautiful. Aaron dropped me off at the ems building where I met Brett and used the satelite phone. Everyone is glad to see me safe out of the woods. I gnot a room at the lodge and took a long hot bath. 6 days is a long time for me. Then I did my Stinky wet laundry and went to get my box at the post office. Adelle was really friendly as well. Its a small town and everyone knows everyone and everything it seems! I really like it here. Turbo and windbreaker came in on the bus and are going to share my room and eat dinner with us. The crab cakes were so good! We visited a long time at dinner and my foot was killing me so I just went to bed. Vegematic got m
e a cinnamon roll for breakfast tomorrow! I'm going to have to go on a diet starting soon!
