Not a very exciting title for a post that deserves much better, but I have so much blogging to do to catch up before my sister's wedding next week that I better start. Like, yesterday!
So I know some of my friends dont like it when I look on the rideshare section of craigslist for people who need rides to the places I'm going..but I ended up taking this really cool guy named Kelvin who is from the artic and on a journey across many different places. He took a bus for 20+ hours from Mexico into Phoenix and I picked him up on my way to Sacramento. I also picked up dog shampoo to deliver to a lady which I end up doing every 6 months or so. It works out really well and was also a craigslist deal. The other people and items I was going to take ended up not working out but it was nice to share the drive with Kelvin and get a little sleep on the way as well.
|He had a huge camera that he was using to document his travels which he hopes to turn into a mini-series to air on tv. Pretty neat! Along the way of the drive he asked me different kinds of questions and interviewed me. I felt like an up and rising celebrity! Hopefully some of the footage he took of me winds up in his final draft and I could be on tv someday. Yeah! I dropped him off at a hostel in downtown Sacramento about 530am and from there he headed to Portland a few days later then up to Canada and I'm not sure where else next. You can follow his adventures here|
|Cool contraption made for the "butt bag" which I thought was pretty genius. Genius enough to take a picture of anyways.|
|The bag that holds the caribbeaner and gloves gets pulled up into the silver thing (cut off top of a soda bottle) and that protects it as it gets dragged up to the top of the rock.|
|On the Indiana Jones Bridge - one of the ways you can come back up after rappelling to the bottom of the 150' rock.|
|Spying on Linda and Sheila as they ate brownies and ice cream at the dance on Thursday evening. Hehe|
|The girls dancing..it got going pretty well soon after this pic was taken. I might have a movie I could post...|
|Tator Tots in the cook's "guessing jar" . Haha!|
|I got to work from the top of the rock on Friday and after a quick refresher , I was good to go! Here I am pulling one of the lines up from the bottom of the rock after belaying someone down.|
|I heart being on rappelling staff at Camp Ritchie. I want to do it til I die! hehe|
|The view is always so spectacular!|
More pictures and possibly a video or two to come in my next post! An extra bonus though, click here to go to the video I posted on youtube of the priesthood guys up at camp participating in a new song that someone taught everyone. Its pretty hilarious!
