Seeley-Woodworth Shelter, Va 14 Miles Hiked Today 801 of 2167 Miles Hiked Total

Zoom & BishopLeft Buena Vista this morning after stopping by the post office one more time (still no package from Rob). Had a steep climb up Cold Mountain and then nice views from some grassy balds. The rest of the hike was rather boring.

Now I am sitting at the picnic table watching Candyman be an idiot with white gas. He wants to discard the gas and rather that pour it out and let it evaporate, he is pouring it into Ziploc bags and chunking the bags on a fire. The first throw landed on the edge and he had to go move it. Then the bag melted and the gas evaporated and the fire went out. So Happy Hour put leaves on and restarted it while Guman made a torch with pieces of bandana and a stick. This was used to dip into the gas so that a lighted end could be used to poke Ziploc number two. Three idiots playing with fire and highly explosive gas. Luckily, nobody got hurt.
