Part 4 – Solo night
So we hiked to this beautiful lake. [Sucker Lake] It was awesome! So the guides faked us out and had us set up camp, then they had us set the HS guys up with a some lake front real estate of their own. They were going to spend the night in the woods by them selves. We let them chill for a couple hours then brought them dinner. her’s where my funnest, most in my niche part of the trip happened for me. I have food to half the guys on the lake. Why I gave them dinner I prayed with them and asked if there was anything they needed to talk about. After I had given my guys their food, I continued around the rest of the lake to the other guys that Matt Deitrich gave chow to. I loved it!!! When I was talking to Ryan Teich a bat hit my head like 10 times. But I didn’t want to raise an alarm because he wasn’t sure about this whole thing, and had lost his flashlight earlier in the trip. Some guys just let pray how I felt lead to, but others really had some heavy burdens, and it was my pleasure to help them all. When we I finally got back to camp the leaders and the guides broke out some jerky, chocolate and IBC root beer that had been in a snow bank while I was circling the lake. Matt Haggerty and I slept next to each other and watched the stars. It was a great night. The next morning we broke camp and met the truck at the pick up. We called it the LZ, as if were in the infantry.
