Subject: April 27th training hike Betsy, Pierre and Bongo

I have 2 vacation days today and tomorrow so we headed up Eagle Creek Trail to Wahtum Lake to spend the night. We made a point to use everything as if we were on the AT, particularly Bongos' gear. We were able to fit almost all Bongos' stuff into her backpack and still have it come in under weight. We are carrying all her food and her mini z-rest pad.

On arriving at the lake, we had all dropped our packs to scout out the best campsite and Bongo got the "zoomies", tearing up and down the trail for 3-4 minutes with her tail tucked under. Obviously not too worn out after 14 miles.

We lucked into a fabulous day, perfect temperature, minimal wind and sunny, even though we were in the shade most of the day by the creek.

We made a fire as we gathered up a bunch of trash to burn from a few campsites here. It is a pain to start a fire with wet wood!
