Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
This will be an extremely relaxed trip. If you have never been back packing before this will be a great introduction for you. Experienced backpackers are also invited because it is going to be a lot of fun!!!!
We will leave Friday afternoon for House Mountain. We will hike about 2 or 3 miles and set up camp for the night. We’ll have dinner and s’mores (!!!) around the campfire and partake in general campsite activities (i.e. singing, sleeping, etc.). In the morning we’ll have breakfast, break camp and set out to finish the last mile or so to the summit of House Mtn, then head back down the mountain, totalling 6.4 miles for the weekend.
The club provides:
a seat in a car
gas if you drive
backpacking gear, tent, etc. if you need it
friendly gung-ho, quasi excentric leader
You should bring:
WATER (I will be bringing at least 2 liters)
Saturday lunch/snacks for the hike
good hiking shoes
rain gear (just in case, right now, the forecast is not predicting rain)
if you have a guitar, and can carry it on your backpack, then definitely bring it!!!
