We got a pretty good nights sleep, tent and all. We both had to wake in the middle of the night to find the port-a-john (they warned us this would happen atleast once during the night). This was my least favorite part so far. I forgot my glasses and had a heck of a time finding our tent! I have, however, been a trooper about using the facilities. I think this surprises Jill :)
By 6:30 we are at breakfast eating eggs, potatoes, yogurt and a biscuit. You would think that this is too much food or it is too early but we are starved and having no problem forcing it down.
The people serving are so cheerful and I am amazed with the energy and attitudes of all the crew. Walk I can, but crew I am thinking, I cannot.
This is the start of our day leaving camp grounds... our new home really is beautiful!
The beginning of our trail leads us through the park and onto more trails. The path is a little uneven and is hard for our still stiff legs. One of the crew men thinks he is funny... "Watch out for the poison ivy!" "I see a snake up there." I am thinking he needs to be retrained. After 2 miles and stretching we start to feel more nimble.
We passed this amazing piece of property... looks like an old jail but it is now vacant. This route is much better and today is a lot hotter. We shed our jackets at 9 a.m.
Part of the Department of Corrections Property... Note- Google Historic Jail, Occoquan
My favorite part of the day was the Pit Stop with the HighSchool Cheerleaders
