Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
You will hate yourself for going on this trip, you won’t have any fun at all, don’t do it. That’s really all I can say.
We’re going to wake up way too early, drive too long, and walk too far, so I honestly am not sure how you could enjoy this at all.
Now that you’re convinced not to come, specifics:
-leave Echols @ 3:45am; if you’re early you’re on time, if you’re on time you’re late
-drive about an hour to the Old Rag parking lot
-summit that bad boy (mostly in sheer darkness)
-watch the sunrise and hang out for a while
-hike out and drive back, should be back in Cville by 11:00
important: will cost $5 for parking if we don’t get SNP passes
-shenandoah park pass (if you have one)
-sturdy hiking shoes
-2L water + snacks (really more of a breakfast??)
-something warm to wear at the summit (seriously, please)
-a serious appreciation for type 2 fun
If anybody actually wants to do this, DRIVERS NEEDED!
-drivers get priority off the waitlist. The club reimburses for gas +50% tip!
-drivers need to show up to Echols with a full tank of gas!
I suspect that if you go on this trip it will be one of your more memorable hiking experiences ever, for better or for worse :’)
