So I finally got back from summer camp (BSA). I went to Cole Canoe Base for a week, and I managed to earn Law, Safety, Graphic Arts, Cinematography, Chess, Soil and Water Con., and Composite Materials. Ramming into other canoes with a kayak was quite fun.
Like every year, we had some torrential downpour. My tent was on a slope, so my tent partner and I dug a trench under our rainfly to prevent the tent from getting wet. Afterwards, I took a shower in the rain. The rain wasn't real good in getting out the shampoo though...
The most memorable moment was when I was in the LumberJack relay. I was supposed to throw a hatchet and dash to the person pulling the log. After throwing the hatchet, I tripped and fell on the ground. I did a barrel roll, lost my glasses on the ground, and kept on running. I caught up to my competitor (who was surprised I passed him), and beat him by 15 or 20 yards. My glasses were recovered without harm. Sadly, our log cutting duo did not come through for me, so we lost.
I'm leaving for a mission trip tomorrow to help the poor. It's going to be better having a solid roof over my head and minimal air conditioning. The best part is that, aside from me, my entire group is girls (my age). I guess I'll dig this topic back up when I return from that.
