Over, Over, Over

Yesterday, Saturday marked the final Sam grad event. In an attempt to prevent excessive grad drunkeness, it’s traditional to organize a fairly elaborate multi-day wrap-up, which goes like this:

1. Thursday night: fancy dinner at hotel (Renaissance on Hastings).
2. Friday: rafting trip in Lytton.
3. Saturday: BBQ at parent’s home.

I went on #2 (one of 12 ‘supervising parents’) and I think it’s fair to say that it was enormously successful. Lytton is extremely hot!!, and the campsite we stayed at was crazily noisy, with an active train track within 50 feet and a busy airport about 1/4 mile away.

How busy can an airport in Lytton, BC, be? Quite busy insofar as Lytton’s #1 industry is forest fire fighting. We were woken up each day at the crack of dawn by one helicopter after another shuttling fire supplies to 2-3 conflagrations clearly visible on the ridges surrounding Lytton.

I’ll try to post some pictures later.
