So I left you in Syracuse - sorry about that!! Ü
|crazy bus we saw in MA|
|Memorial Lodge: el toru rifki shoo per loo marpu sparman war crew banner|
|even the m & m's!!!|
Next morning we had breakfast and hit the trails...
|even the yarn bombing had stamps!!|
|rained the first night|
|boxing with the PA girls! See the humidity...|
|pretty bridge - see the mist - humidity|
|that goes steeply downhill|
|yep there is a fishing pole with a box attached|
|if you look close you will see a pole with water coming out|
Then there were two planted in the lake - you had to go out to get it. It felt so good on our hot and sore feet!! Great stamps and clues - did I mention we had such a good time?
|why yes, we are standing in the lake in our clothes - why? For a box of course!!|
|follow the heads|
|and then down|
|I think he's dead|
|yep - he's dead|
We met some fabulous people - as I said. I group from PA - they are crazy - we later found out it may have been a sugar high that kept them going!! They were the first we group boxed with. The first people we met at camp were "Four if by sea' - Kristen and "Zigzags through the woods" Becki. They are AWESOME!! We boxed with them - and ate meals with them! They are a riot!! Scott got up and took my plate to clean up and Becki asked him why he didn't clear hers - then he piled all the plates at her spot. The next few days they cleared each others plates regularly (left Kristen and I to fend for ourselves - rude!!) We took to calling them "our girls" - like "hey, look - it's our girls" We even texted each other on our way home - I inadvertently told them where we were staying - they got there before us and planted a box just for us - that they carved in the parking lot!!! It says "one last plate" a picture of a plate and fork - and a heart and "your girls" So sweet!! I stole the box and will carry it with us!! They live far, far away in WV
|me, Kristen, Scott, Becki|
We would have lost weight but every day we went into town to get a iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts - just to ride in the air conditioned car and have a cold drink!!
I believe they do this event every 5 years so we will do it again - I hope some place less humid - I must start training for it by working out in a sauna!! yikes!!
We bought a bunch of patches - letterboxing ones to put on our boxing bag. We now have 1080 finds - we found 161 boxes on this trip. That doesn't count all the personal ones and the exchanges. I did manage to get out of camp without any cooties - that is a boxing term because I did end up with a weird rash on my face - don't even want to know from what. Camp went by quickly and we left early Monday morning - that will be tomorrow's post!!
