This is the first year back for Raymond since he has gotten out of the Air Force. He along with Alex Brown and my brother Mike Campbell got up here about 5:00 in the afternoon. They found a solitude location behind a huge rock, right down on the river. Harold and I arrived about 2:00am. Everyone was still up and they had a roaring fire. Between the three of them they drank 2 cases of Beer last night. Of course the next day they were sporting a real good hangover. I have a little hike planned for the day. This should help with their hangover. We are going to Big Lost Cove Cliffs
