Western Nationals

Ione Washington

Western was held at Ione Washington.  The hike up the hill was a real b**ch!  Very steep and wet.  Not the type of hike for slick bottom moccasins.  Rained every day. Had to haul everything up. Larry had to split out his gear half way up and make two trips.  Note to self, find a way to pack lighter, not getting any younger. Gear worked well.  Met Allen Hall.  Neat cabin. Neat bunch of guys and gals. 

you want me to go where?
