down & dirty camping trip 08:]

so, last weekend me and 20 of the young adults at my church went camping. We left on thursday and drove 7 HOURS and ended in tiftonia/chattanooga, tennessee!!! After we got there we set up the campsight and tents and later we went hiking while we cut down trees to make walking sticks and spears...[fyi: while we were doing this we were marinating & cooking steaks] After we got back to the campsite we just ate and hung around the fire...the next morning we woke up around 9am and cooked breakfast, biscuits, bacon, and eggs..it was good. When we got done eating we tried to thaw out a little so we could be semi warm on our long hiking day we had ahead of us. We left around 10 and hiked from about 10:30 to 2:00. It was so much fun, other than the fact the wind was blowing, it was 40 degrees and pouring down rain. So, as you all can imagine it was . . . interesting but totally a blast!! When we got back to the site we took showers and melted the ice-sicles off our noses. After that we made chili and played games and hung out around the campfire...It rained all throught the night so it was FREEZING the whole night but since we had alot of clothes on we kept warm. The next morning we woke up at 8am, ate breakfast and got dressed for our 4 hour WILD CAVE TOUR. i thought it would be pretty interesting and hard but i never thought it would've been as intense as it was. It lasted 4 hours and the tallest part was about 20 feet tall. We did everything from 100 yard belly-crawls to straddling a 100 ft down crevace while leaning and keeping our balance on the wall across from us to sideways walking a 1ft wide shelf and hugging the side of a cliff only to look down into a black hole!!! It was the scariest thing i have ever done....ha. but as you can see I made it out alive and I had the time of my life..it was so much fun and i'm so glad that i went. anyways i'm posting pictures and i'll explain them as i go...love and miss you all.!.!.! can't wait to see ya'll on turkey day:]
