We all met at the church and hung out while people put ice in their coolers. Then we left for our half hour drive. We stopped at Bojangles this time which everyone seemed to enjoy. There were a few scouts that ran down to Harris Teeter for some food. We left Bojangles and arrived at Falls Lake 5 minutes later. We all set up our tents and hammocks and the patrol stuff. Then we took a little nighttime walk and went to a field to look at the stars. With the help of the leaders we were able to identify some constellations. We all headed back and went to bed. We woke up early and everyone got to work making their breakfast. After cleanup which was quick we reorganized patrol gear which we had been wanting to do for a while and headed of to Dead Brook Farm. When we got there we ate lunch for an hour and started the lesson. The teaching didn't take long and we were off brushing the horses. Then we were assigned horses and began the ride. The ride went well. Then we packed up and headed back to camp. When we got there we had plenty of time to spare so we all relaxed. The next morning we quickly packed up and left by 10:00.
