omg me

(no subject)

Sooooo I just got back 4 hours ago from another trip to Boundary Waters. SOAMAZINGOMG. It was affected by the Ham Lake fire and we went up there to help them clean up. We drawknifed trees (taking the bark off so they can use it for lumber), picked up A LOT A LOT A LOT of nails with magnets, picked up melted and reformed glass (and stole some melted and reformed glass. IT'S SO COOL LOOKING OK?), hauled big metal like bedframes to docks, we PADDLED THEIR BARGE which used to be a dock and was totally funny, weedwhacked, and generally were jacks-of-all-trades. I'm going to be going back up probably the first or second week of August to help some more. (if someone wants to come with they should TELL ME OK? AND SOMEONE SHOULD COME WITH BECAUSE IT'S FREAKIN AMAZING.)

So since we didn't go on trail we paddled to rock climbing one of the afternoons, so I have a LOT of video from that. I also have a video from the ride here with the guys obsessing over my tabloid (win, I know), and of a bunch of counselors playing in the water and being funny. Yay!
