Snorkeling, August 31 to September 2, 2013
It was an early morning as adults and scouts from troop 537 prepared to embark for a weekend of snorkeling and tubing. After a quick departure, we were on our way to Florida, some of us more awake than others. After a quick stop for breakfast at McDonald's, we carried on to camp. On my car ride, a certain scout demonstrated his psychotic love of wrenches. A quick Wal-Mart adventure was also enjoyed by a few scouts and myself. By about 12, we were at our campsite, and ate a quick sack lunch. Dr. Wells gave initial snorkeling instruction to the younger scouts, while us older scouts waited to hit the springs. Although the springs we were practicing snorkeling at were supposed to be empty, let's just say that local residents were there as well. It was clear that they were taking full advantage of their Labor Day Weekend, but at least 26 individuals were more concerned about the water activities than the questionable camaraderie going on. All of our crew came out alive, with some enjoying the atmosphere more than others. It is clear that we should never return here on a Spring campout. After our adventures at Ginnie Springs, we returned to camp after an hour long car drive. We started on dinner pretty late, and didn't eat until around 9.
