Trip Reports

 

The Gear Game! We identified some pieces of anonymous gear as an external frame backpack and a bike rack…. Good job!

 

Caroline went ice climbing last weekend and the weather was snow-globe perfect!

 

The Olympics this past weekend! Ultimate awesomeness. About 150 people from Queens, Sherbrooke, Tufts, Ottawa, Cornell, Guelph and McGill were crammed into the MOC house! Sock-wrestling competitions. Bushwhacking on garbage bags and crashing into rural Quebecers. Good times!

 

Colin went orienteering for a team building expedition. It had frozen the night before and everyone was wearing a lot of gear. Lots of faceplants. The army is fun.
