Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
We’re back bitches, and just in the nick of time. Yeah that’s right, it’s been a while since I’ve led or even been on a trip but I’ve decided to go out with a bang.
That’s why I’m teaming up with fellow officer, trip leader, and future housemate Michelle Lovering to offer those of you with late exams the adventure of a lifetime.
Here’s the plan:
-Meet by Echols at 2am
-Drive one hour to Old Rag
-Hike for about 3 hours
-Sun rises at 6:10am and we sop up its glorious rays from the pinnacle of the rock scramble
-Hike for 2ish more hours
-Drive one hour back to Charlottesville to arrive in town at approximately 10am
-stop for breakfast? dine together at runk? part ways to never see each other again? only time will tell the dramatic conclusion to this fantastic adventure!
What should I bring, you ask? How could I possibly prepare myself for this tremendous hurrah?
-HEADLIGHT (or a flashlight because a good portion of this will be in the dark as it is pre-sunrise, but preferably not just the light on your phone)
-water (2 liters)
-snax (for you or to share or both)
-carnivorous arachnid repellant (you never know)
-good shoes to hike in
-anything else you deem
