And then Summer Happened or that time we went camping with 400 of our dearest neighbors

This was the summer of trek.  (and Jamboree and driving to AZ twice and many other things!)  But mainly it was the summer of trek.  After two years of meetings, all the plans and work came together in a spectacular four day trek experience. 

However, when I watched this trek video, I thought "Oh, that is what happened on trek!"  Our trek experience was very different.  Paul was in charge of logistics (and maps and web site and whatever else!) which translated into being in charge of moving toilets all over the mountain. 

Not to go into too much detail, but imagine dragging these toilets over very bumpy dirt roads and then imagine the result (we tried wrapping the toilets in plastic wrap and it didn't help much).  Let's just say that I have cleaned my share of toilets for the next three years!  It was an adventure. 

Toilets aside, trek was amazing, wonderful, and a treasured memory.  I would go again in a heartbeat. 


  1. Cute picture of you three! I can't quite imagine what those trailers were like (and maybe I won't try too hard)! Definitely an important part of the entire experience I'm sure! :)

  2. Looks like quite an adventure! Glad that there's someone willing to take care of the nitty gritty details, as they say.

  3. I didn't think about this aspect of trek! Our stake is going next year. You are authentic looking pioneers xoxoox
