 These rock walls are everywhere along the trail.  These are all the rocks early settlers pulled up to try to cultivate this land.  This wall is three feet thick.  Poor souls.

It rained buckets last night.  It was still sprinkling when I got up, so I took my time.  I was the last to leave at 9:00.  Last night Cheese pointed out we would be passing a “beach” with a concession stand.  I intended to pass by, but I caught up to the gang just before noon. They were all hanging out at the High Point State Park Headquarters because they give out free sodas.  Turns out the sodas are Pepsi, and even though I'm homeless I can still be a snob.  I loath Pepsi, but I got my free one and gave it to Einstein.  The promise of a cheeseburger and a Coke or Dr. Pepper were too strong.  I went with them off trail to the concession stand.  I got a cheeseburger, a beef empanada (surprisingly), a Coke, and a Poweraid. That was $20.00.  I've got to stop making these pitstops.  I blame Cheese. There were free showers, so it was worth the visit I guess.

This evening we stopped in Unionville because there is free camping in the park across from the pizza place.  I blame Hop Along for that one.
