After Unloading the Jeep Onto Our Backs, We Set Out for Camp299 viewsIt was about a 2.5 mile hike with fully loaded packs over very fine sugar sand. Jenny is seen here looking at me groaning under the weight of a 198 lb backpack with firewood strapped onto my ass. She was singing "Beast of Burden" by the Rolling Stones. Anyhow, that 2.5 mile hike seemed a lot longer to THIS beast of burden! We did get there, though, and found that there were two guys camping there as well. We made them a peace offering of our firewood and proceeded to set up tentage in the dark.
