After we did finally find Dan, we had a great time. Nick helped grill steaks over the camp fire and we had an awesome dinner with Dan and Chelsea's families. Unfortunately, because of all the commotion from trying to share steak knives and plastic forks, I forgot to take pictures. I did, however, take pictures of Dan eating s'mores with jumbo marshmallows.
It was a great time in retrospect. Nick and I, not outdoorsy people, would never have done that on our own. The fact that we can be in a trying situation where we don't know where we're going, hot, hungry, and physically fatigued with beer in our backpacks and not even raise our voices makes me confident that our future together will be a smooth ride.

Emmy to prove that we were actually there. There was
no cell reception so we weren't able to call him to ask him
to pick us up and drive us in to camp.

but there was no way that I was going to let a dusty dog
get on our bed.
