This was last nights home. There were also some nice tent spits next to the creek.
Juan Dürrur decided to cowboy camp under the picnic shelter.
At 8am I arrived at the Pine Grove Furnace State Park General Store, home of the halfway-1/2 Gallon Challenge.
Not quite..those containers don’t quite have 1/2 a gallon like they used to. So we had to eat another pint to finish things out. That’s a lot of ice cream especially at 8am! Took me an hour to recover before I could start hiking again.
Glad I wasn’t doing it for the big prize…the glory was more than enough.
The 1/2-gallon challenge log book had some impressive times. One Shot did it in a very competitive 25 minutes! (He’d be psyched if he could do his Ironman swim leg that fast)
That much ice cream could have made this a tight fit later in the day.
We dropped from the mountains into the farmland of the Cumberland Valley and Boiling Springs, PA.
