(Daily Mi: 5.9) Felt a little dehydrated and hung over all day. Late start out of Four Pines. Later still after I hiked to the convenience store for another round of supplies.
Endlessly switched climb up onto the Dragon's Tooth.
Stopped early (4 pm) because: (1) I am lazy; and (2) my grandmother turned 101 today and I need to make a cellphone call (between 5-6) from on top the highest local ridgeline -- which requires about 3/4 of a mile of bushwhacking to achieve. Actually climb a pine tree to get signal.
Found a registry entry at the shelter from the Potato Man left back in April on his way north. Find names of few other NoBos I met in PA around the same time.
