Things I learned from Family Camp...
*It isn’t called Big Sandy for nothin’. (thanks, Christine)
*Everyone brings a part of Big Sandy home with them no matter how much they try to clean and leave it behind…
*Red clay turns orange when wet.
*You CAN start a fire in the rain with enough lighter fluid.
*When tent camping in the rain, it's probably a good idea to have a backup.
*One rule to repelling….don’t look down. 50 feet looks much taller from the top of the wall than from the bottom.
*In regards to the repelling rule…do remember that you come in contact with the ground at some point.
*One more point on repelling....if you listen closely, you can hear the ALERT Cadets laughing as you leave...
*I would have lost weight at FC from all of the walking had there not been a coffee bar…
*There is always someone willing to lend a helping hand.
*Forget fixing your hair. What’s the point?
*Forget packing plenty of clean clothes. Again, what’s the point?
*Good shoes are a must.
*Bikes are a must.
*Ponchos are a must.
*Don’t pick the old horse on the trail ride.
*Do attend the sessions, they are so very encouraging.
*Don’t go barefoot, the sticker burrs have steel barbs on them, I’m sure of it.
*Do take plenty of healthy snacks, the concession stand is evil…
*A fly swatter can be your best friend in the bath house.
*Hamburgers and peanut butter taste better in Big Sandy.
*You can find the biggest blessings in the most unlikely places.
*Lew Sterrett is awesome.
*The Duggars are awesome.
*The Bates are awesome.
*The staff is awesome.
*The friends you make are awesome.
*You'll never want to come home.
