Hiking Trip Part Three – Camp

So, I left you last time standing atop The Hill, vowing to conquer it one day with a full pack. I really mean that, too. and have taken steps to facilitate a return attack next year.

But first let me tell you, if you didn’t read yesterday’s blog post, go do that now because there is an excerpt from this book in it.
