The start of things

This morning Group B went Geocaching, kind of like a scavenger hunt using mini-hints and a GPS. We paired up, got on bikes, and explored the campus looking for different items all over campus. Some of the hiding places were really hard, but I feel like we really got a good feel for the campus. Group A got to walk around with a professor who likes to be called "Smith." We got to excavate a historic site that was about to be torn down, and we found a few old nails, which was surprisingly really exciting. When Group B excavated later in the day, Smith said that the nail we found might be the oldest nail found on the site yet. We got Popsicles afterwards, which was really nice because it was so hot outside.

After dinner, we had Dr. Haskell talk about his book "The Forest Unseen." I think everyone enjoyed listening to him speak as we sat outside as the sun was setting. After our busy day, a few of us dropped by the near by coffee house and hung outside chatting about everything under the sun. Others went out to the gym and had a good workout. I can't believe that it's only day one! I can't wait for the rest of the week!
