Lessons of yesterday

Sometimes it's good to write things down for next time.

  • To figure out where to camp, one of you go left and the other right. Then come back, compare notes, and the group votes. It's a good process.
  • Those US Forest Service folks earn their money. They protect us from ourselves in out-of-the-way places: getting lost, shooting off too many guns, growing marijuana on federal land.
  • Yellowjackets are mean creatures. Deet works on yellowjackets.
  • Following Jim to the swimming hole is always an adventure. There may be steep slopes, prickly bushes, dust up to your ankles, and route-finding. It's all part of the package.
  • Granite Creek might be more granite than creek. In these cases, just follow Jim.
  • When I miss dinner and you insist on describing the buffet feast you just had, I'm not a nice person.
  • Cooking s'mores on a grill is a good idea, until someone throws something on the fire to make it flare up.
  • Eat s'mores every night. Life is short.
  • Your body doesn't sleep well unless it's hydrated.
