December 7, 1991
The record rain (2½") on Friday made for sloppy going on Saturday’s hike around
the east side of Mt. Pisgah.
But to paraphrase RMN (middle name Milhous) — when the going got tough, the tough got going.
Really. The six-mile hike was finished in record time.
But then, it was obvious to me that the group (half Ob’s and half not) was — as the
French might put it — puissant.
The cheerful fun-to-be-with mud squishers were Nancy Adams, Ben Elkus, Shirley Froyd, JoAnn Haines,
Sylvia Harvey, Mary Holbert, Stacey Kiser, Joyce Mitchell, Eleanor Wilkerson and leader Bob Devine.
