    Another fun day in the woods! Haven't been to ramapo torne since last century- yikes! Thank you everyone for helping out and keep the various packs moving. And, thanks Jim for taking the fast pack out for a couple of extra miles. My fave part was the ladder, my 2nd fave was the Biatchie hostess at Rhodes who wouldnt let the fast crew sit next to us- whatever, I'm going to do what I want! LOL!
