The Aftermath of FallFest…

Our second annual FallFest turned out to be another huge success, as you can see from the picture above. We were hoping to reach 400 attendees this year, and we surpassed that number with a total of 434. One of the highlights of the night was the hot air balloon ride. In addition, kids had a car smash, human foosball, giant boxing, speed pitch, dunk tank, dodgeball, basketball, the zip line, and two bonfires with all the hot dogs and marshmallows they could stuff down to keep them entertained. Halfway through the night the kids were bused up to the church auditorium for a skit performed by High Point Camp’s very own in-house comedians, Steve and Tom, and a gospel presentation by East Brandywine Baptist Church Youth Pastor Josh Park. The night turned out to be pretty chilly, but that didn’t keep anyone from having a great time.

It’s been a few days since I’ve updated the blog with the most current Wilderness pics. Now that the exterior is up to speed, the focus for the next few weeks will be on the interior. Click on the the picture to see some more pics of the inside of Wilderness in our flickr photostream.

This is how Wilderness stands as of quittin’ time on Friday. We had a little bit of a scare about 5 minutes before we called it a day when Ken’s extension ladder slipped out from under him and he plummeted 25 feet to his….ok it wasn’t quite that morbid, but it was scary. Other than a few sore muscles he’s fine and back at it today.

Yesterday we ran into a couple problems that slowed us down, but by the end of today all the sheathing and felting should be done. The new “lid” is lookin’ good!

By the end of yesterday all the trusses were set, and Tom and I were trashed. The goal for today is to get the sheathing and felt on by the end of the day. Hopefully our friend John Deere can help us out a little more than he did yesterday so Tom and I can do a more humane job. Leave the lifting to the guy with hydraulics! Click on the picture to see more pics from yesterday.

This is what Wilderness looked like by the end of yesterday with all the exterior walls in place. Now to put the new “lid” on. (I hope that sweet lady doesn’t read this blog…)
