Derek and Faye had the latest flights out today and were going to be stuck at the empty camp for a few hours. Since I am not flying out until tomorrow I decided to grab them and do a quick field trip to Penns Cave, a limestone cavern boat tour, and then drop them off at the airport after that. We had a super fun time, Faye even got to be the co-pilot on the boat (we only hit a few walls with our boat) and Derek now knows the difference between a stalagtite and a stalagmite.
When I got back from the airport it was a totally different environment at camp. Everyone left today, not just our team but the entire camp because it is the end of the season. The place is a ghost town. I walked around camp and saw the course and ramps that were packed last night now totally empty.
Luckily the Fuel TV crew was still around and not ready to just pack up and leave quite yet. We had a heated go cart race session this evening with no major injuries and only a couple broken carts. Then I headed up to the lodge for a BBQ with the Fuel TV crew. They had started a sand volleyball game and when I got up there is was getting pretty dark. Rather than quiting, they busted out generators and lights and turned night into day on the court which allowed us to continue playing until about 11pm! It was a rad way to end a killer week at camp. I can't wait for next year.
