There was enough of a break in the clouds to fly in our last bit of propane. The airlift is over for 2012. Time to get the lodge in order for our first night of guests on the 19th.
The current temperature is 30 degrees. It has cooled off a lot in the last 24 hours. Yesterday was in the high 40s.
The Appalachian Trail Conference volunteers are on the mountain. They are working so hard to put in a new privy. I will keep you posted on their progress, in case you want to hike up to check out their handy work.

Hey Allyson. I'm sure it's a relief for the airlift to be over. Congrats. Have JP's things come off the Mtn yet? I'll be out of town most of next week & wanted to pick them up so we are ready to head to the airport. Thanks and have a great day.
Ha! I put the helicopter hauling the propane tank up as my screen saver of the day. Need to show my 2 of my kids that have not been up there how you do things. If memory serves me correctly, was there 52 tanks up there last season??? I did count them last August, but I can't remember now. Just amazes me. Where is the new privy going?? Good job ATC Volunters and Thank you for all of your hard work.

Was there no privy for the shelter in the past? We've hiked by it many times but paid no attention to the amenities. Thanks for the updates and welcome back!
