It's almost here
Our last pre-trip meeting is just a week away (Thursday the 18th, at RCS, starting at 4:00 p.m. sharp). At that meeting, you will receive your art kit, resource notebook, community task groups, field groups, cook groups, and tent groups. You will get receipts to put in all of your financial support thank you notes. You will have all of your stuff checked against our packing list to make sure you have what you need. We will have our first group slackline session. We will learn about event maps, collaborative journals, memoirs, and species accounts. A professional artist will be coming to teach us pen and ink and watercolor technique. We will be singing some of our signature songs. We will be grilling on the same grill that will travel with us through eight states. We will be setting up, taking down, setting up again, and taking down again the tents that will be home all across the country. Bring $6 for dinner. Be excited. 'Cause it's about to go down.
