Do you know if you can walk out to the intake tower (doubt it but it kinda looks like it) or what the trails near the lake are like? Just curious.

I‘ve only been once while driving through the area sadly, just loved that view. The tower looked very off limits for what that‘s worth and it seems like you‘d have to come from somewhere other than Justice to get to the lake.

that's because DC homo is obese, and his dad has bone spurs or some kind of medical condition where he can't walk more than 1/2 mile

the irony is DC faggot gets mad every time someone tells him to go to shenandoah national park. I originally though he can't afford the $20 entrance fee or something, but with his level of terminal autism I'm surprised he doesn't have the national parks disability pass

I'd like to check out the Appalachians some day but for now I'm in Oregon. This is recent from the shore of Davis Lake. That might be Maiden Peak.

I spent a little time living in Bend, Oregon.

If you ever get the chance go to Tumalo Falls and then keep heading upstream past the falls along north fork tumalo creek. I dunno if it is different now, but when I was there trail was really only passable July-early October maybe due to TONS of snow. Multiple waterfalls very pretty:

I found the trail leading up to the fire tower at Panther State Forest on one end of the group campground.Decided against hiking it because skies were overcast and rain was forecast soon.

There are actually two ways to get there, there is also a longer route leading from near the state forest offices along a gated fire road.

Old water pipe I think leading up the side of the mountain for fire fighting purposes. Up the mountain is the fire tower so I guess this might have allowed the fire tower to fight fires from there at one point.

that other guy was a larp.

basically the Friend I went with had a super negative attitude the entire trip, bitching about anything that could be bitched about. (My feet are wet, it's too hard to hike up the sand, I wish we had and hamburger meat but the stores are all closed, there's a couple mosquitoes here), a general lack of interest in anything, and on the fourth day of the trip (the first two day being mostly driving to the camp site), he got super sunburned because he doesn't understand how to use sunscreen. he was in so much pain apparently that he decided he was not only unable to hike, but also not able to stay at the campsite or anywhere near, and needed to go home immediately. I found out about this, by waking up at 6:30 to all of my gear taken out of the car, and him telling me that he has to leave now, and no we can't stay another day, and if I want to stay any longer I could rent a car. but since we're over a thousand miles from home, thatll cost me at least $1200. he had no remorse or anything. it was perfectly logical to him.
so we left after spending two and a half days hiking, and ultimately three days driving, and me getting back home at three in the morning.

>pic related was a waterfall that took 30 mins to hike to, that he didn't feel like walking to after him saying he wants to see a waterfall on day one. his reaction to me showing him the pic, was a resounding, "nice".
>>
>>2136902
To be fair there's a lot of planning that goes into trips in terms of making sure you have adequate food and supplies and a lot of people don't plan ahead.
>>
>>2136908
we had way more supplies than we needed. way more. we had sunscreen with us all the time. he just didn't give a shit. like, his fucking reason for coming in the first place was that he figures the encomy is going to collapse in a few years and because of that he won't be able to travel at all.
>>
>>2136902
Also just as a suggestion we normally travel 200-400 miles away for our trips. Finding local/regional destinations can often be just as satisfying without spending days in a car.

I'm sorry that happened but the key I guess is to learn from your experience.

>>2136913
I mean it sounds like you bit off more than you could chew given his interests and ability level. I'm not defending him, but you have to adapt to other people. I try to think up 4-5 possible hikes/scenic things per day and offer them as choices.

waterfall, overlook, lake, swamp, creek hike, swimming hole, mix it up.
>>
>>2136916
we did mix it up and nothing we did was hard. first hike was maybe 8 mi round trip to snow topped mountains above the tree line, not that steep but a little wet because of all the melting snow. and that was it for the first day. just that one hike. second day was just hiking up some dunes and a 30 minute detour to this waterfall hours later. he just got sunburned and that killed all of his enthusiasm to do anything. he didn't even try to get over it. it was the first time he's ever been to the mountains, and all it took was some sunburn for him to not be interested anymore. he was really enthusiastic the weeks leading up to it and the drive there and when we got there so everything seemed fine. Its just incredible how little it took for him to not care anymore. I could count the times on one hand where he seemed excited about something.
>>
>>2136926
8 mi is a lot for some people...especially considering elevation gain and terrain
>>
>>2136928
I was letting him go to his own pace, and checking up on him and every once in awhile, asking if he was okay, if he wants to go back, everything. we got to the top and he wanted to keep going. there was just too much snow. we got back and he said he wasn't tired or sore or anything he could totally handle it. I was very careful not to push this guy. I planned our hikes starting with the easiest going to the harder to ones.
>>
>>2136931
>there was just too much snow

sounds like he was scared to speak up and you pushed him way too hard and he was upset over it

its june you can find lots of places to hike that are not snowed in by now

>he said he wasn't tired or sore or anything

yeah so he was afraid to say anything and you pushed him too hard
>>
>8 mi in the snow was the easiest hike

yeah I would have driven home too
>>
>>2136933
why you making all these assumptions? you don't know this guy at all. this guy was speaking up constantly about all the stuff he actually had problems with.
I was the one who said there was too much snow. he wanted to keep going through it he was pushing harder than me to go through this stuff. I said it was a bad idea because I've done this before.

also there was only snow at the top. and we stopped just when we hit snow. also it's 8 mi round trip. so 4 miles there 4 mi back. The snow is at the 4 mile point.

The airbnb host told me about this swimming hole upsteam of the wilmore dam on folsom rd. Water was 5ft + deep in places. You can also swim in the dam itself but that seemed a bit more dangerous. Water was real cold but it was a hot and humid day.

We saw a maybe 12 year old boy riding an atv as we drove back to the main road after swimming. Interesting how this part of WV (McDowell County) most of the trails are for atvs and not really so much intended for hiking, compared to further north in WV where ATV trails are not so common but hiking trails are.
