Here on Chewonki Neck, we have had non-stop precipitation for two days, giving us an insane amount of snow. On Friday, Bill’s math class went outside to build a snowman. It was Margot’s first snowman ever! On that note, this week is going to be a thrill for all for we are camping in the winter with minimal heat.
This up coming week of February 28th, Semester 46 is preparing for their winter wilderness trip. There are six groups; three of which are in tents, two in cabins, and one in a yurt. The groups have different destinations: Holbrook, Hidden Valley Nature Center, Flagstaff, Big Eddy, and Dottie’s Cabin. We will be gone a total of four days and three nights. Unfortunately, the trips may get canceled because of a report of frozen rain on Tuesday, which is the day we are supposed to depart.
I am nervous for the cold weather, but I feel the adventure we will experience together in each of our groups will make up for the multitude of cold toes and red frosty noses. We are getting our minds and bodies ready for an adventure of a lifetime! Peace out!
