Nelson Family Death March 2010

The day after the 4th of July - Jay woke me up with a yummy breakfast. I had him put his hand in front of the skillet to show you the size of the eggs - we had fried quail eggs with sauteed mushrooms and onions for breakfast. It was really yummy.

Then we went down camp and Dad took us on a Nelson Family Death March. Seriously, it was SO FREAKIN' HOT and we went for a hike in the pine barrens. I drank all my water in the first 10 minutes and was dying by the end. It was so hot that even Hank gave up a few times! We really had to encourage him to keep going!
But we did see some cool things. Dad took us down a small trail to an old homestead.
We found the old pitcher pump,
And two gravestones. We think they are for dogs. One says 'HOPE 1927-1936' and the other says 'MOLLY I forget the dates, but similar.'

Here's the old garbage pit - people have been digging through it doing their own archeology studies.

And a wicked old car just rusting away in the middle of the woods.
