Epic Weekend

13 Jul

3 days, 18 friends, 1 cabin, and a whole lot of fun.

Things I learned…

  • Some awesome hoola-hoop tricks.
  • Croissant o’clock is around 8:30am and again at 2:00pm
  • No matter how much you try to start breakfast early, making bacon wakes everyone up.
  • It takes 2 hours to make 3 packs of bacon, a huge stack of waffles, hash browns and 2 dozen eggs.
  • Never leave 4 teenage boys to make pizza, it ALWAYS burns.
  • I can swim across the river up stream.
  • Always put sunscreen on your legs when planning to tube down river for hours.
  • I should NEVER play Scatergories, it only ends in fights and tears.
  • Bring more allergy medicine.
  • I can shoot a target (beer can) at 50 yards with an M1 Garand (the gun that won WWII)
  • The best hot dogs come after hours of tubing down river and bar-b-qed on shore with a tiny Weber grill.
  • Skinny dipping in broad daylight with 9 women is awesome.

We had no access to cell phones, internet, or cable television. Instead we watched movies on a projection screen in the back yard for entertainment. we also made bon fires,  climbed trees,  jumped off rocks into the river,  and rode ATV’s.

I can’t wait for the next trip!

    Oh my gosh, let’s go right now. On second thought, why did we ever leave? For real.
