We are back from our first- ever Venture Out Project three day backpacking trip and it was amazing! We hiked 18 miles on the Long Trail and had the time of our lives. We got to swim in two different ponds and eat some really good food. Summer sausage was a huge hit as were the six pounds of cheese we brought with us. Being from the Pioneer Valley it was only natural that we brought a whole bunch of kale with us too.
K.J. taught us all about Leave No Trace and Perry, of course, got to give his famous poop talk. Luke kept us on course with his map and compass skills. We were serenaded with early morning moans of "oh my body!!!" and put to bed by snarky poetry.
All in all we had a great time and are so happy to have great memories and new friends.
