Saturday, November 27
The next place with a motel is 28 miles away and I had planned on leaving early to get there. I called the motel to inquire about possibly reserving a room and found that due to Deer Season beginning Monday morning - they are fully booked with hunters and unfortunately have no vacancies.
The good news is that since the only motel is full - I need be in no rush to leave tomorrow.
The bad news is that there is a light snow, the temperature is in the 20's, and I will now have to camp for the night. Topping these factors and paramount to me is the fact that when I awake the woods will be crawling with hunters - all with "buck fever." I will have to be most careful in selecting a site. Perhaps someones yard offers the safest option.
I bid adieu as I return to the elements of the Pennsylvania Mountains.
