Thursday a trip was made on the Dan River. Friday was a
rain day all day. On Saturday Section 3 was run on the
Dan with some very interesting class 2 rapids along
with thunder and lightening. Some member made a trip
on Sunday while the rest packed and left the camp.
The remaining people staying over was Bob Guckel who

and Frank and Katie Dupin stayed over until Monday.
Wild turkeys were seen and heard in the campsite,
along with coons. Dogwood was still in bloom, as was
rhodadendrum (spelling?), mountain laurel and other flora and
