Liz Inloes - Tuesday, July 10th

This is Liz reporting from Victory Peak. Well not really, but I’m sitting at breakfast looking at it. On our first day we camp to the camp around 3 am and then got four hours of sleep. We were assigned our work groups for the week and I was assigned to “grounds work”. I got to pick weeds with Taylor, James, Bryce and Davena  and then we ate lunch. The food here is really good! After lunch the rain held up and we started mowing lawns. We were shown around in a truck to all of the places we need to mow. We have to mow the majority of the grass on this 480 acre camp. That’s a lot of grass! We got partially done, but because there is 6 inch high clover covering 50 percent of one of the fields it takes 2 people to cut it down to the proper length. We then had dinner and then left for a “river buggy” and it was quite interesting riding in a van that has no seats, no handles, and mud covering the floor. That van got stuck while we were at the river so on the way back James, two of the three Joshs, Samantha, Jake, Amy, Aaron, and some others had to ride on the edges of a pickup bed. One of the scariest things of my life besides losing my dignity on the plane when a guy opened the door to the bathroom  while I was in it. We got back and had some interesting experiences and then went to bed. It’s a lot of fun here and thanks to anyone who has helped any of us get here!
