5/28: Backtrack to Campsite, 680.0

Hello everyone! Breeze here at the end of a very joyous day. The reason for my joy is because my brother Luke has finally come to do some hiking with me! Man has his hair gotten long since I've last seen him! And of course he had lots of things to say about my scraggly beard. He has been planning to come do a big section with me for a while now, and the time has finally come. The coming of my brother unfortunately marked the simultaneous departure of Wendy. Because Wendy is going to be gone for a few days, Luke and I decided we would go back together and redo one of my favorite sections: The Keiffer Oak to Daleville! Included in this section is the Dragon's Tooth views, McAfee's Knob, and the Tinker Cliffs! If you're read my blog from 5/25, you'll know how much I loved this section. Luke has a lot to look forward to on this trip. By the time we hit Daleville he'll have seen many of the highlights thru hikers look forward to the entire trip.

Well Mrs. Cindy came to pick us up and away we went!  We spent the whole rest of the day catching up and telling stories. Sometimes I feel like I'm missing so much by being out here. When we got to camp, Luke had a huge surprise: RIBS! Can you believe that?! He was carrying an entire rack of ribs! It was a literal dream come true for me out here in the woods. Thank you so much Mom and Dad for being so thoughtful :). And thank you Luke for carrying it! Perfect end to a perfect day.
