The first full crew meeting of the summer is finally in the books! We got a lot accomplished in a short time, and I'm excited to keep the momentum going. The boys already planned another meeting for tomorrow evening to work on some knot tying and canoe flipping. At our first meeting, we had the crew work together to arrange all the maps of our potential route. It was fun to watch them figure out how to communicate effectively to correctly match up longitude and latitude lines. Luckily, no one was too upset when we told them about the key that is hidden at the bottom of every map. After using the maps to discuss potential trail routes, we worked through some logistics and important dates for the rest of the summer.

All in all, it was a great way to kick off the summer. We are also in the process of searching for two more crewmembers to join us on trail this summer, so please point anyone that might be interested in our direction!
