**THIS IS A FUN AND SOCIAL-ORIENTED BACKPACK!!!!**

Soooo, I'm trying to put together a backpack for folks that are interested in playing games, staying up late, having campfires, s'mores, etc.....so if you're not necessarily interested in playing card or other types of games, socializing, campfires and/or s'mores, this might not be the trip for you. 

The goal is to meet at the Thunder Creek trailhead at Colonial Creek Campground, and hike at a slow-to-medium pace, take our time, take photos, stop for lunch, and just socialize and have fun.  I will stay overnight Friday night and pick up permits from the group.

**WHERE WE STAY DEPENDS ON WHAT PERMITS ARE AVAILABLE FRIDAY NIGHT** The trip may vary from 4 miles to 9 miles depending on permit availability.  I will be camping at Newhalem Friday night, anyone is welcome to join me and we can have a campfire dinner and whatnot for added fun!

Other notes: This trip is for folks that don't necessarily want/need to get up early Sunday morning.  (That way we can stay up late Saturday night) When we decide to wake up Sunday depends on how late we stay up. 

** PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR EMAIL AS I WILL SEND MORE INFO VIA EMAIL**
