Here they are… the final 5 in the Top 10 worst/best parts of traveling during the summer…
- You probably have bruises on the insides of your arms from getting boxes thrown or passed to you while unloading the truck in assembly line fashion in a zipper pattern. Your team finds great joy in comparing bruises and the scale of intensity directly relates to the color and size of the bruise. Also, by the end of the summer you can load or unload in about an hour and a half flat.
- Stationary teams won’t be staying in hotels at all throughout the summer… but you will.
- You are going to be tired. Not a little tired, but REALLY tired. Like more tired than you’ve ever been… and yet, you’ll be amazed how God gives you all the energy you need and more to keep going.
- You left your soccer goals or your paint for Art Studio at your last location. Sometimes in the craziness of loading camp neccessities are left behind. This prepares you for life because you are forced to be flexible and innovate. You know how to play 16 different games with a pool noodle, just in case.
- Upon arriving at a new campus, you must learn where everything is. My team from last summer can tell you that I struggled A LOT with this. I am quite possibly the most directionally challenged person in the universe, but since we traveled so much, I always had an excuse to carry a map with me and to use my GPS to get to Wal-Mart.
