We're leaving Ohio around 4pm and will likely make it into Dahlgren 10 or 11pm. That gives us Friday for 7 leisurely miles into Gathland.
Well, after numerous automotive issues, I think I'm ready to head out in the morning. Per our phone conversations, we will meet in parking lot at Gathland, spend Wednesday night at Ensign Cowall.
Thursday, we'll text Demeter by 3 or 4 pm to let her know where we'll camp, either Pine Knob or Dahlgren. She'll hike in to Gathland with us, and then we drop her off at her car on the way back to retrieve our vehicle.
Looking forward to the hike and meeting you guys!
Happy Trails All ! ! !
May the forest spirits be with you.
Hope to hike with you in the future.

Yeah, have fun and be safe!
"If a man speaks in the woods, and there is no woman there to hear, is he still wrong?"
Geez, if I could only get packed. It's been a hard week and I'll be exhausted by the time I hit the trail. My wife is apopleptic that I'm going to be gone for four nights - she thinks I'm abandoning the family (especially the dog Peanut- never mind the 13-year-old son).
On the positive side, I got my Ursack in the mail. It's sweet.
Getting off work early at this point as long as nothing crazy occurs between now and then. Can't wait to meet you on the trail tonight!!
