    My adventure starts on Sat. Me and Trasher (my doggie Bens' trail name) are leaving with the family to an "Apple Festival" ( crafts, food, music and fall stuff), with a picnic on the river complete with a pick-a-nick basket. Then catch a ride to a home coming party weekend at Clarion university. Stay the night at a friends, catch a 70ish mile ride east. Spend another night. Another ride. A short 30ish mile hitch, a stealth camp somewhere. Hook up with MML and spend a night at his house . Then on to Gathland for the pre hike! Whew! A lot of adventure just gettin started! I hope that time slows down and it will be a never ending 10 or 12 day deal.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Ok - Change of plans! In an attempt to lighten my load I've ordered some new gear that won't be here until Wednesday - so I'll miss the carpool. I'll leave when I get the gear and head to where everyone's parking and hike South until I run into you guys.

    How far is it from the parking site to the hang site? We are bringing things and trying to gage how far a walk.

    Pre-Hikers Meeting Wednesday

    Wednesday Pre-hike Loop from Gathland to HF/back to Gathland:
    MML, Rook, kayak karl, ferret, sweetbabyd, Two Tents,Bear Chaser, WV, Black Wolf

    Thursday Pre-Hike Carpool: SilvrSurfr, perrito

    WV mentioned meeting at noon ... if we're going to hang around Weverton Cliffs .. this would be a good time ... the Cliffs are about 3 hours hike away ... at the bottom is where the AT the C&O towpath meet ... there's shelter on the C&O as well .. we can check out HF Thursday .. or if any wants to there's a few side trails at HF... Maryland Heights and the Loudoun Heights Trails if anyone might wanna check one of this out... short but strenuous ...

    SilvrSurfr, perrito ... not sure if you found parking ... there is overnight parking at the Maryland Heights Trail head and one where the C&O meets the AT... this might be a place to meet up ...

    I'm locked and loaded ... looking to hammer down the last few details with the pre-hike loop ...
