Adventuring's annual two hike weekend and joint stay at the Big Meadows Lodge and Campground in Shenandoah National Park along with the Capital Climbers is scheduled.

ADVENTURING HAS RESERVED 10 LODGE ROOM SPACESAT THE BIG MEADOWS LODGE FOR THE NIGHT OF SATURDAY, AUGUST 12TH. Each room is a Preferred Room with 2 Queen Beds. The charge for each space/bed is $105. Your RSVP here on Meetup is not a guarantee. Please send a deposit check for $105 (Lodge requires first night payment upfront) made out to Adventuring to Bill Horten at 10368 Autumn Woods Way #203, Fairfax, Virginia 22033 as soon as possible. When your check is received you will be sent a confirmation email so please include your full name(s), email address and cell phone number. If you have any questions, please send a Meetup message to Bill.

Two other lodging options: 1)After that, others can make their own reservations and still be welcome on our expeditions - book directly at: http://www.goshenandoah.com/lodging/big-meadows-lodgeWARNING - THERE ARE NOT MANY AVAILABLE ROOMS LEFT AS OF JUNE 10th.

and 2) You can join the Capital Climbers who are camping near the Lodge on Friday and Saturday night. FOR CAMPING INFORMATION, contact Aron Hinson at: [masked].

We will carpool from the East Falls Church Metro Station Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m.; note the early time. Bring plenty of beverages and Saturday's lunch, bug spray, sunscreen, a swimsuit and towel, an estimated $75-$100 for expenses beyond your room deposit (e.g., transportation/meals/trip fees), plus as much as you'd like to squander in the Tap Room.

Jeff is busy planning the routes for our hikes this year so stay tuned here for more details.

In between these two glorious days of hiking, we can delight in the pleasures of the Big Meadows Lodge, where we will rendezvous with our very own Aron Hinson and some of his rock climbing friends of Capital Climbers. They will climb nearby Stony Man on Saturday andcamp on the campground adjacent to the Lodge. We will have dinner together, close the Tap Room at ten, and then enjoy a late night walk to the Meadows to view the annual Perseid Meteor Showers (weather permitting). What a sky show we have had in the past!!!

For those who have reserved a lodge room through Adventuring, you can only get a refund of your deposit (minus the Lodge's $15 cancellation fee) if you tell us to cancel your reservation before Monday August 7th.
