It was HOT. Which should be a sufficient enough description for anyone in the vicinity of Romney, or the Sun.
I'd missed the Morgantown crew's 2006 adventure at the Trough, so when ScoutingWV offered to organize another trip I threw our hats into the ring (my favorite type of trips are the ones where someone else handles all the details all I have to do is show up!)
This was the first time that my loyal sidekick and I manned a canoe together, so it was an interesting float. By the time we got the hang of it (me understanding what he meant, and him not telling me to "do what I'm doing" - hard to do since I was in front and couldn't see) the trip was nearly over.
But back to the cache. At the appointed pull-in, two of the canoes went to the easy side ('cause they'd already found it) while we and Family Frog (who also already found it) pulled into the muddy / boggy / shoe-sucking funland. I scrambled up the hill while sidekick floundered on the hillside, unable to make any headway.
Found the cache handily, signed the log, shouted down at the rest of the gang and made my trade.
Rode the leaves back to the canoe and paddled across for lunch.
Great time indeed! Many thanks to ScoutingWV for organizing, and to the Wandering Bears and Family Frog for the great company.
