Highlight of the Week

Lowlight of the Week

Jerry: My lingering stinging infected blister on my left foot.

Bennett: I got really frustrated with Buzz when it was ‘my fault’ we’d left his bear rope more than a mile back at the shelter, and I had to go retrieve it. Was a rough morning but quickly passed.

Karen: Having to cancel a much-anticipated, long-awaited get-together with friends at the last minute.

Memory of the Week

Jerry: A surprise trip via hitching into Bland, VA, for lunch and Blizzards at DQ!

Bennett: Spending all week playing cards (Canasta, Spades and Euchre) with Mio, Pusselgut, and Spyro. Was a ton of fun learning the new crazy games amd getting super competitive. Even hiked in beers to the last shelter to enjoy while we played our final night together.

Karen: Senior night at lacrosse with Carson.
