On Friday some of our boys got together for an optional meeting at Base Camp. At this meeting we went for a portage, learned how to use our stoves, and practiced some knots. We did a slightly longer portage than the one we did previously. We are going to try and extend the portage every time to build up our endurance. The guys did very well! We also had some fun with learning our stoves by making hot chocolate on the stoves once everybody had successfully lit the stove. The boys will be getting used to the hot chocolate, as we will have about 1.5 pounds of hot chocolate per day on trail. Looking forward to another optional meeting tonight, and our first paddling day tomorrow!!! Check out some updated pictures on the website!
