This blog is about the Galveston, Texas winter camp. From the long drive from Oklahoma City to Galveston, Texas it was long. The views were great and the people were nice. The first night on the road we slept at a church in which a lot scouts were playing ping pong. We ate Dominoes Pizza which in my opinion was great.
After we left we were heading for the Huston space center. It was amazing seeing all of the historical and not so historical exhibits were people have dedicated there lives to reaching beyond our atmosphere, some of them were boy scouts by the way. After that we went to the campsite right next to the one of the Gulf of Mexico’s bays and next to bathrooms! Next day we were soaked by the rain, and saw Ellis, a famous cargo ship, and ate shrimp made by Mrs. Johnson. The day after we went to the Moody Gardens, which we say a 4D movie version of Happy Feet where they splashed water on us and did all of these special effects and we saw an IMAX presentation of a movie called sharks were we learned about the endangered species of sharks and then we went ice skating! Also that day the new patrols tent site was flooded and so were some other campsites. The last was short and fast, but then began the long road back to Oklahoma City which lasted 12 hrs.
The trip was exciting from the long road there to the long road back home. This was also the last camp of 2010. This was a campout a lot of us scouts will remember. So as we say hello to 2011 we should always remember the times in 2010.
