The weekend was pretty hectic so we spent most of it running around like crazy. Little known statistic about running around like crazy in the mountains: One out of four people in your group will fall down. Three times. (The locals will tell you that a good way to increase your chances of staying upright is to make sure that Emily Gray is one of the four people in your group.)
I feel like I should mention that there was a blizzard while we were there, which kind of explains why I fell down so much. (What it does not explain is how my three companions managed to avoid it...but I'm pretty sure I heard they were all part mountain goat. That's weird, you guys.)
Here's a quick rundown of the weekends events:
7:00pm Arrive at camp. Stay standing up because there's relatively little snow on the ground.
10:15pm Fist pump with 600 kids for an hour
11:45pm Leave for the house where we're staying, which is reportedly a twenty-minute drive.
12:30am Arrive at the house. Blame the roads.
6:00am Wake up to a blizzard.
7:00am Begin the twenty-minute drive back to camp in the blizzard.
7:45am Arrive at camp. (Seriously, are there ANY street signs in this town???) Immediately lose Hailey's keys in the blizzard.
8:00am Find Hailey's keys. Shake
8:30am Fall down with surprising grace and try to play it off like it was on purpose.
8:31am Hailey tries to play it off like she believes me.
12:30pm Fall down again, this time with little to no grace whatsoever.
5:00pm Find out that four kids have gotten concussions from falling down; feel strangely upstaged.
7:30pm Rap in front of 600 people. No big.
7:31pm Decide that from now on I will respond exclusively to the name Lil' Luda.
9:30pm Convince the folks at camp to let us stay there so we don't die in the blizzard trying to get back to the other house.
10:45pm Brush my teeth with my finger because all our stuff is at the other house.
10:50pm Catch Gary using Brit's toothbrush.*
8am-12pm Walk around in a sleep-deprived haze. Fall down. Probably.
12:30pm WITNESS THE MOST AWESOME THING EVER and capture a very blurry version of it on my camera. (Just watch the first 10 seconds or so if you're one of those weirdos who doesn't enjoy motion sickness.)
*Just kidding, Brit. Or am I???
