However, at a toll booth, we were shocked to find out it only accepted change. Then, we were even more shocked to find out we were $0.75short!! As we were backing out of the toll booth, Luke, from the Ninja Cat patrol finally found his emergency money. It had $1 in quarters. YEAAA!!!! HIGH FIVE. YAY. A few road pics.

Anyways, when we got there, we spent the next 5 hours building our shelters.
|This isn;t complete. Just a pic break.|
|Notice the wood cot I made.|
|I used a sleeping pad to smooth it out.|
|Crushed wheat. You're doing it wrong.|
Anyways, our completed shelter. Kinda messy, but it was great inside. A vid of the inside.
A wonderful team from the Ninja Cats helped me get the roof up.
BTW The Ninja Cats are another patrol. The DOC (me) is in good relations with the NCs.

Unfortunately, as we were cooking delicious chiken burgers, disaster struck. I was walking back from the dumpster after throwing away a dirtied chicken bag when, Ziiip! A crazy biker scout cut one of our shelter guidelines. Oh! Woe! What little it takes to bring ruin upon thyself!!
Clonk! WeeeEEeeeeEW Crunch. Spat. Zipp.
I couldn't get a pic because my camera was buried under about 60 pounds of mangled rope, pole, and tarp.
And to top it off, it was exactly 2pm. Tarps, as plastic, after sitting in the sun for 3 hours, as you know, get hot. I walked over the the rubble and started digging. YEOOOWW!!! Wubz said
"Jro, it's no use. It's too hot to attempt to rebuild or repair."
Unfortunately, Wubz was right. After we returned from our hike, I began to rebuild. It was about 7pm, so Daniel make the tough choice that it was every man for himself.
It was Nathan. A fresh squirrel. Oh yea. In scouts, a squirrel is a rookie, anyone below First Class.
Due to my struggling reputation to be helpful, and my awesomeness. Ok maybe not. Then "EM4HS" meant "I build a shelter for Nathan as well."
The big one is Nathan's. Just kidding. Call me a jerk, but he didn't help with my original shelter, so I can't be blamed. So never ask me to build you something if you don'y provide the materials. :-D a
|Actually, the houses have the same 2 tripod design. My house just had a bigger tarp.||And larger tripods.|
|About 50 ropes|
|So much to do|
|So little done.|
