Hi Everyone!

We had a meeting yesterday and we were all excited to paddle. We got done with our dry land paddling and were about to get canoes in the water when the clouds starting forming. The thunder and lightening kept us off the water for the evening but everyone was very flexible. 

Instead, I taught the girls how to set up a tarp. Our knots came in handy when in the rain! We also learned how to pack a kettle pack. This is a useful skill since we will be packing and unpacking it at least twice a day. The last thing we did was learn a few things about maps. The crew learned how to find UTMs, which are like coordinates, and all the different symbols a map uses to define the lay of the land. They also got ideas flowing for planning the route! 

The crew is working really well as a team!
