One of the weekends we plan all year to attend. Amazingly enough, Andy ended up getting a couple people to work his weekend, so we were free, Friday through Sunday night, so that was good. We signed up and were ready to go. At the last minute, we almost backed out, because we didn't even think we had enough gas money to get back and forth! But, because the weather was predicted to be great and because we both had the weekend free, we decided to worry about it later....just go!
Man, we were so happy we did that!! It was awesome. I would have hated to miss that special weekend of the year, especially with the nice weather we had. Friday morning, we put together some Enchillada Casserole to take for that night's dinner and to share, and packed everything up including our pre-cooked and frozen Jack's Polish sausage. We were one of the first ones at the Schoolhouse (Steeve had beaten us there), and put up our tent.
Saturday morning, we are getting ready for our hike. We are spotting cars, and dividing up into two groups: The short hike of 7.5 miles, and the longer hike of 12 miles.

Here we have Dave and his expressed hate for mountain bikers:
