I want to thank all the staff at LGC for helping me get the stuff packed. Tyler did a great job of tetris with the boxes. Peter, Ben, Julia and Julie helped load stuff, and Judi helped with packing up more of the little stuff. (if i missed your name here, I'm sorry- it was an crazy day)
Once we were packed up two of my childhood friends, Barb and Shawn, showed up to drive everything up North. Ben drove the car up, Shawn drove the truck, Barb followed with her car, and I drove the van. (We had radios and were re-enacting "Convoy" from the 70's with CB lingo- "10-4 good buddy")
Rich and Matt met us at the camp, and in quick time we unloaded while Shawn got the fire going in the wood stove. After a great meal at the Oxbow Inn, everyone headed out except Ben and I, who stayed on camp. I gave Ben a tour of camp.

I didn't realize how much this move affected me emotionally. Every step so far has been surreal, and this just made everything more concrete. I'm sad to leave the camp, but am also excited to take the next step.
I want to personally thank Judi for being an emotional support, Ben and Julie for their continued encouragement, and everyone else who helped in the move.
