Last Weekend

Here are a few numbers about last weekend…

  • 170 youth attending YOUTH CAN! (1 day climate justice event)
  • 31 friends came to our going away party
  • 23 letters were made for us to read on the road
  • 17 days until we leave on our adventure
  • 2 tarps got put on the Airstream in preparation for the snow
  • 1 new pair of shoes for each of us

I hung on each word from my coworkers and the board members. I tried to take the opportunity to get to know everyone better, and for my introverted self, I did an okay job. Here are my top five highlights from the weekend (in no particular order):
