The unvarnished truth
I got some hike reports from Scouts tonight. One of them is a classic. Here is a transcription, without any editing on my part. This is a 12-year-old's summary of a 20-mile hike.
Logan B's hike report
20 miles! A hobbits Tale
We got up a 6:30 and ate breakfast and left and 7. We had 2nd breakfast at Jesus Christs church Barn and headed off! We walked and walked and walked and walked some more to lost creek bridge and ate lunch with pain killers. then we walked along the ridges and then ate trail supper. Finally we got laughery creek and crossed it. Then with a 1/4 mile left don was dehydrated (dramatic music) Matthew helped him then we went back to Arts cabin and ate supper!
