Recap of last weekend


This past weekend was hands down the most fun weekend of the semester. Spring Break was wonderful, but that’s in a separate league. So what made this weekend so special? Well, anytime you take a camping trip with Brittany, Joy, Brain, and add 7 other cool people. Add competing in a triathlon with your dad and some other friends from A&M, and I’d say that’s equals one mighty fine weekend.

So many details, but I know of y’all hate reading so here are the highlights:

Friday:
Drove to REI in Austin
Bought a tarp to experiment as an alternate to using a tent
Car broke down on Hwy 1 (Mopack) right next to NTB (truly a blessing from God)
I stay with my broken Explorer while Brittnay, Houston, and Caleb load into other cars
Eventually arrive to Pedernales Falls, surprised to see the Ranger Station open
Hike 2 miles into camp under moonlight (so wonderful)

Saturday:

Woke up early, Explored, Pancakes, Explored the Falls, Drove to Austin, met Mom and Dad, checked bikes for Sunday’s triathlon, ate at the Olive Garden, slept like a rock

Sunday:

Woke up, too nervous to even eat, drove to triathlon, waited, waited, waited, waited, HORN, inhaled water, biked, and ran, saw a 100 million Aggies cheering for me (such a delightful surprise), saw my dad be a hero and finish 12 minutes faster than he ever imagined (this after only 2 WEEKS of training), drove home, ate with Scott, and got ready for Linear Programming test on Tuesday.

For those who like to read, I intend to write out the full adventures later.
