Last weekend was the Trail Days festival in Damascus, Virginia, which is the fucking biggest hiker party of year. So naturally I got there on Monday and stayed there partying all week. It was cool to have almost everyone who I've met in the past two months there in one place. Also, I shroomed that Tuesday and on Saturday night I took acid for the first time (can you believe I hadn't done that before? cause I can't) which was very nice. A perfect end to that trip. My dad was like 5 hours away near Culpepper, Virginia at a Datsun 510 get together with some people. He came and got me and brought me back, which was a really long ride with all the shit we had in that little car, and I hadn't slept in almost 2 days.
Anyway though, I'm back here sitting on my ass just waiting to go back out. I really should be more active than I have been this week. We brewed beer last night though, which I've been wanting to get into for quite a while and am very excited about. I wanted my dad to get back into it too, because I know he enjoys it, but he hasn't really been able to do much of it since he moved to Maryland. Now that he's in this house though, it's back on. I'm going to make him do it at least 2 more times before I leave, I want to have a good idea of what I'm doing before I go to South Dakota. It's one of the most satisfying hobbies you can have in my opinion, I'm looking forward to doing it on my own when I leave here. Yay beer!
