In the summer of 1983, Roman and I took 6 scouts on a 2 week hike south along the Long Trail in Vermont. We started at highway 105 north of Jay Peak and ended up at Interstate 87 in Jonesville, just before Camel's Hump. It was a time of firsts for me, and, I think, for many of the participants as well.

First night was at Jay Camp, with Jay Peak behind us.
First day was tough on everybody
