Trip Introduction:
I had missed my May trip this year and the only time to go would be the tail end of August. Had many different options for trip partners, but in the end only one would go (Gabe). Gabe had never done a wilderness camp expedition, so this was going to be interesting. We both had the same motivation for this trip, and that was getting away from the rat race. Mission was accomplished.
Day 1 of 7
8/18/11 – Thursday

Picked up Gabe and headed north by 5 pm. Drove to Castle Rock Lake, where Gabe’s dad has a cabin and arrived around 9. Stopped at subway, just outside of Lyndon Station, for dinner. Gabe’s mom and dad showed up bout 10:30 and stayed up until midnight sharing stories.
