Good Morning Day 6!
Great start, blue sky, and extra sleep. As
we leisurely broke down camp there was still a high running from the day before. Rock
climbing and repelling from the fire tower, it appears we're all still in shock from that
Our stress free breakfast started us off with ease. On to some "combaya shit"
group activities. First, we surrounded a rope after we closely examined a small stick. Our
instructions were to find the stick within the boundaries. One by one we all caught on to
Denise's subtle hints (head on ground, ear facing up with stick behind her ear... Hell-o!)
We then moved onto some communication skills "mirror art" with 5 items. Back to
back we explained our designs. Some were simple, some were deluxe (Larry) (oop, first
base) (second base) I guess I have to play "fart baseball", solo.

A necessary stretch from our rigorous climbs yesterday and off we were. A bitter-sweet

Our hike was short, and our setup was quick. We ate lunch and enjoyed some light social
banter. The questions were coming and anticipation was growing. The same response every

culinary delight of munster cheese and crackers.
OK. It's time, what's going on. Denise and Rich informed us of our solo plans and what
we needed. We will fast on this solo during this time we all anticipatee to cleanse our
sole, our mind and our body.
This is one opportunity that hopefully is used to its fullest. As Denise stated, it's
an opportunity for minimalist. At this point I bid y'all farewell and a safe and enriching
experience. Good Night Thelma's Kin.
Just think you guys: only one full day left. I can't believe my eyes. So much to do,
before our sad good-byes.
