Michaux and the Shelter Fairies

Sometimes spectacular things happen in the woods.

I went on a mcom backpack hosted by Lisa this weekend. When we arrived at the Birch Run Shelter after a 10 mile walk in the woods in PA's Michaux State Forest you won't believe what was there. 3 guys whose names I didn't remember but were from Westminister had hiked up from a nearby road. They had packed in a cooler full of steaks, corn, vegetables, spices and sauces. But that was just the food. In addition they had a battery powered blender!!!!! Along with the blender they had a collection of fresh fruit, drink mixes, gallons of tequila, whiskey, vodka and several different types of beer and a great deal of ice. Now there were 3 of them and about 10 of us. But these guys had managed to pack in enough for everyone and they didn't even know we were coming.

These guys were Gods, because all I had brought was some raman. I told them they could have all of the raman they wanted but they politely refused. All our group had to do to partake in this largess was collect the firewood. I didn't take any pictures because I was too busy eating. I think Lisa took a bunch, I'm sure she will put them up on her site one of these days.

This weekend was fucking fantastic.

That sounds like it makes up for someone or something pooing in your shoe last hike!
