thumbnail Rock Gap Shelter, where my supply point was. There are some people in the shelter: Mogely (a mangy dog) who was with three guys who were off from college and in to music. Big Foot was also there. Also, some guy who worked for IBM. But my camera has no flash and so you can't see them. We had fun eating pineapple and drinking stove fuel mixed with pineapple juice (don't worry; the stove fuel was Golden Grain). (extra-BIG)
