Super Trip Photos

Well, the Super Trip for 2010 has gone into the history books. In just 8 days, the scouts and dads of Troop 112…

  • Traveled 1400 plus miles by car.
  • Walked an average of 7 miles a day.
  • Drank enough water to to fill most of the Louisiana Superdome (Okay, this is NOT an official stat)
  • Introduced the kids to music from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. (Explaining that Lady Gaga is not anything new to us old folks.)
  • Laughed, slept a little bit, enjoyed pizza, burgers, fries and pop tarts.
  • And just had a great time.

In addition to all of this, we saw some incredible sites. Like…

  • Hundreds upon hundreds of Civil War monuments in Gettysburg.
  • A reinactment of the crater battle in Petersburg.
  • Stories from actors on the surrender of Lee at Appomatix Court House.
  • We met our Congresswoman Sue Myrick  and toured the capital.
  • Got stuck in a rain storm and laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown solider in Arlington National Semitary.
  • And did a night time walk of the monuments in DC.

I wish time and space would allow me to write about everything we saw. However one man did say “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Well then this link should be worth one million words. A long time friend of scouting Roger Epps joined us on the trip and was the official photographer. He has graciously shared his pictures. I hope you enjoy these fine shots.
