Brushyland - January 2002
*** Garratt Carlson ***
How cool is this?! Garratt drove his electric four wheeler all over
the camp area. His mom (Allie) had to push him up a hill or two that it
couldn't quite get up but other than that it did great out there.
He's A Lumberjack And He's Okay...
Technically this picture is from a trip on the previous weekend - but I just had
to include it. Until this trip, Mike hadn't experienced the cathartic sweat
of chainsawing in the woods. He and his new chainsaw kicked butt.

Goodness, are those pictures of Allison and Alaina awesome or what?
*** Gary Krumbholz ***
We had the pleasure of hearing Gary play and sing around the campfire again
this trip. And yes, he played "Fire And Rain" - and lots of other cool tunes
from Willie to Stevie Ray. Great stuff.
We played a new *night* game this trip that was an absolute blast. Someone
would go out on a 4-wheeler and hide glow sticks on our various wooded trails and
then the others would divide up into two teams and try to find them - on dirtbikes
and 4-wheelers. Yes, they have good headlights. There's nothing like being on
a dirtbike on a chilly night in the middle of the woods. Very thrilling.
We also got to see Saturn and Jupiter via Chris' telescope. It wasn't a very
powerful telescope, but you could still just make out Saturn's rings and
Jupiter's moons. Not bad! Despite my best efforts I could not see Uranus :)
