Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Old mortar shells from military exercises during World War II are occasionally found in the Scenic Area. They should be considered extremely dangerous. If one is found, DO NOT TOUCH. They are unstable and may explode. Report it to the District Ranger in Petersburg at (304) 257-4488.
That’s the kind of excitement that awaits us in the Dolly Sods Wilderness, where we’re going to backpack and camp for four days five nights in a spectacular four-star spa resort with hottub… I mean four-person tent with rain fly.
I go to West Virginia at the beginning of every summer, and Dolly Sods is my favorite so far. So far. Maybe we’ll get totally lost and find an even better place… But we probably won’t. In which case Dolly Sods will still be pretty nice.
You should have some backpacking experience to join the trip. We will be doing a very great deal of hiking. Anyone who doesn’t know yet is going to learn about Dinner Juice and the Yum Yum game.
drink- and food-holding devices (pref. metal camp bowl, mug)
good socks (3 pair no cotton)
Jokes suitable for an audience over the age of 13
Liters, 3, of water containing capacity
money for food on the road, money for paying me back for the food
Nalgene bottles, as many as you can muster
I’ll get all the food and then we’ll split it up in our packs. Leave room in your pack. I just hope everybody is HARDCORE and EXTREME enough to wear sunscreen and pay me back for groceries.
The club will pay for gas, and provide gear if you need it. The trip fee is an estimate for groceries.

Sorry if that was dry, I haven’t had time to get excited…
