4/28 Gram Cracker’s Kindness (0)

So of course we took advantage of Gram Cracker’s kindness and stayed another day.  Actually, we woke up to a beautiful view of a cloud.  It covered the Smokies completely and dumped loud rain on the roof all day.  Gram drove us to the store to get knee braces and we all bravely prepared to face the loud thunder cracks on the trail, stoically ignoring the sloshing lakes that covered the roadbed as we drove on.  Then Gram said, ‘you all can stay another day if you want’ and everyone exchanged glances.  We decided to wait out the storm drinking beer in a hot tub, like any sane hiker would do.  Gram Cracker, we may never be able to repay you for your kindness but we will do our best to get to Katahdin!
