Got up at 6:00 am again to pickup breakfast. Decided on boiled eggs on toasted sub buns today, less cleanup. Trying to get warmed up for our day on the lake. Had a lot of wind last night. Kevin decided to sleep under their kitchen tarp. Too many roots under the tent resulted in a way lousy sleep the night before. Unfortunately half way through the night the wind got so violent their main center post gave way and landed a foot from his head. He did wake up with a start. but was still all in one piece.
The Lake Adventure.
|Oh, this is good.||The lethal dart.||Want to see me shoot with one eye closed?||bulls eye, almost.|
|Let me show you how a pro does it.||Cold enough for a hot chocolate breakfast.||It's Kermy!||Any one want to kiss him? Might turn into a prince!|
|Yo ho ho and a barrel of rum!||It got too heavy, can you carry it?||The holes aren't lining up...||You know how to tie the knot that holds the barrels?|
|There, I think that should hold it.||Hoist her up mates!||Feels pretty sea worth. eh!||No leaks, barrels holding, seems good.|
|OK, some of you are going to have to get your feet wet.||But it's so cold...||Arr, Maties||Check out that stroking power.|
|Past the first buoy and rowing back to shore. Wind got the other raft and took it clean over to the other side.||Readying the raft to build the fire.||Still readying.||OK, working on the 1 match fire.|
|Their done, our turn..||can we steal some of those embers?||This is you're captain speaking.||Well done, ya bilge rats.|
|So I'm not to keen of going swimming now.||Ya, even with these wet suits, we're freezing.||Bunch of sissy's, what's a little cold water.||I've been looking forward to this all day.|
|Lets pack up and head home for a meal boys.||Check out all the cool fishing tackle I found!||Kevin and his treasure, Mitch and his 1 log raft.||Hey Kevin, It's hard turning this thing.|
|I'll snorkel out and be your rudder.||Hmm, more treasures.|
|Hotdogs and beans! It's going to be punchy in the tent tonight.||I think I'll stick to fruit cocktail.||Well, maybe just a few beans wouldn't hurt.||A few, we're eating a whole can each!|
|Oh this is going to be good.||I can't get any more into the pot.||Start up another pot I guess.|
|We figured out what we could do with our left over apples...||Guess this horse is a bit picky.||The owner said it's his bridal.||Hard to chew with it on.|
|There's a scout still trying to do a good turn. Ask if he could help me carry this lifejacket.||It wasn't that heavy, but it's the thought that counts.||Afternoon football game starts.|
|Final Fireside.||Getting ready for those canon fired t-shirts.||Just missed one there.||Another one lands just in front of us.|
|Lucky recipient catches it in his poncho.||Check if it's your size, dude.||Another in-coming t-shirt.||Good old Conner, great catching arm. Trouble is he's already wearing the same shirt. Maybe I could sell this?|
|Felipe leaves the group to be part of the Honour Guard.||Pres. Erickson presenting the boring stuff again.||Felipe representing us in the Guard.||He looks pretty official up there.|
|Getting to the point where he folds his part.||There it is. The flag we all signed, folded up.||Now handed to Bro. Beck.||He's going to present it to President Monson for us.|
|Now for hot chocolate.||I'll just put the water into the container. I like it strong.||A bit for me too please.||Good thing we have a few of there choco containers left.|
|Now I can see the bugs floating in my drink.||
I know that's a nice cabin behind me here, but it's just not camping if
you're not in a tent!
Good night boys.
