Hey Slowhike. This is Home Run up in the Buckeye State. If you guys don't mind some company, I'd like to join in the festivities. (I took my little girl to the Highlands a few years ago to backpack and see the wild ponies...what a great time we had! Even though she's got her own horse now, she still wants to bring a Highland pony home.) I want to say I'm new to the forum and hanging, but an ole backpacker. Last fall got into a HH, slept like worn out beagle pup, and have been hooked ever since. The festival sounds like a good time, and I'd enjoy meeting everyone.
