Bob Laney, Dan Bumgarner and Landon Alfriend (later Dunn) had the idea to go on a New River camping trip on a summer weekend in the late 1980ís. Landonís boyfriend Jimmy Stevens, the president of the Northwest Outing Club and a major paddler, was not available. Danís wife Pat was not able to participate in such strenuous outdoor adventures, and Bobís (former) wife Kimberly had a conflict.
Landon was a trooper, not giving any thought to being the only woman on a trip in the woods with two handsome, virile, men. Well, at least, two average looking, chivalrous men.
We enjoyed nice, sunny weather and a good time was had by all.
