We all got at the center at 7:30 in the morning. Most of us were still mentally asleep while others were very excited on the day we had ahead. It was raining when we got to CI and it was still raining when we were getting ready to leave. Once we said goodbye we were all set to not know the challenges we were all going to be facing ahead. It was a long ride but it didn’t seem like it since we all feel asleep. When we arrived at the cabin, we played some exciting games. We then got ready to go canoeing. We went into the car not being aware of the hard task we had before us today. Canoeing, at first, didn’t seem difficult seeing that it wasn’t raining nor much wind was blowing. On top of that Lauren and I were good teammates. That all changed once the currents were pushing us away. It started raining like cats and dogs. Not only was it hard to see were you were going, but it was fogy. We found ourselves in the middle of a deserted island, unable to paddle back since the currents were pushing us away. After trying different ways in getting back, Lauren and I finally coo-operated with each other and were able to paddle back to shore. It was a very difficult experience, but it was cool that we were able to overcome the powers of nature. We got back to the cabin soaked and wet. We became excited when Vicky and T told us we were going to be able to sleep inside the cabin since it was raining. They made us the best hot coco I ever had. Maybe it just tasted good since we were all tired and wet from canoeing. Lauren and I then put on our chef hats and cooked some pasta. It tasted so good that I ate three plates full. We then were hanging out together inside the cabin playing cards. Night came and it was nothing like the city. There were no lights outside and it was pitch black. Abby, Lauren, and Me all had to use the bathroom so we went on a mission. It was scary at first, but without handy dandy flashlight I felt more secure. As soon as I was done it felt good not having the feeling to use the bathroom anymore, but we then quickly ran inside to go to sleep.
We woke up pretty early the next day. Well at least everyone else did except Lauren, Abby, Chanel, Olivia, Chanal and me. We were the last ones until Vicky and T bribed us that if we woke up we could have pancakes for breakfast one day. We all got up so quickly. It was hilarious how they needed to bribe us to get us up. It was sort of cold and foggy, but we all went up into the mountain. While we were going up we were playing a trust game. One person had to be blindfold while the other one lead that person up the steep mountain. It was easy leading Christian, but it was difficult trusting him. When we finally got to the top of the mountain we ate breakfast. We were then amazed in how high we were in the mountain and how we climbed it blind folded. We got all our stuff ready and we were off to the Delaware River. When we got there we ate lunch and like the previous night I was partnered up with Lauren. She steered the boat while I was the power. I thought that it was going to turn out like yesterday, but I was wrong. We got the hang of it and we got there sooner than we expected. We paddled miles. When we got to the campsite, we saw tiny frogs. They were so cute and I wanted to take one home. From there we learned how to put up our tents. It was confusing at first, but Danny helped us. It was Lauren, Abby, Chanel and me in a tent. We were all starving, but little did we know how bad the rice and beans was going to be. It was horrible. It was an emotional time because we had to eat all the rice that was left over. We pulled through and finished the rice. We then poured water into our bowls and drank it. It was part of our leave no trace rule. We all went into our tents and were talking among each other. We played the picnic game and it was one of the many moments I will cherish.
