Journal Entry # 88

Friday, June 24 - Day 92 - Mile 1032.2 - Dahlgren Back Pack Campground

Week 13 begins.

We had a terrific time in Harpers Ferry with all. Jane drove me downtown to meet Buffalo Bobby & Guardian at 8:00AM and we were off & hiking. Emily came with Jane to drop me off and they both took lots of photos as we hiked out of town. Should be some good pictures.

Guardian feels we need to elevate out standing, now that we're such accomplished hikers,  by dropping the AARP reference to our hiking group and call ourselves the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. So from this time forward that's who we will be. (Team Indecision eat your heart out).

We had another great hike today and along the way we met Soul Slocher who used to be several days ahead of us.  He had a pulled muscle and had to take a week off.  We told him where we were headed for the day and he suggested we go a couple of miles further to the camp we're now in and we would be near a really nice restaurant. Needless to say we took his suggestion and had another surprise ending to a great day.
The Restaurant was high end, but they treated us wonderful despite our lack of evening attire  We could not have had a better time.

The camp ground is very nice as well with showers, toilets and water. Thanks Soul Slocher for the tip.
Looks like we're going to have a good cool night.  Great for sleeping.

Goodnight to all.

These Shelters are getting better and better.
