After chapel that night, there were special meetings for the leadership team: the Crew Leader, the Chaplain's Aide, and the Wilderness Pledge Guia. I'm the Wilderness Guia for my crew, so I attended that meeting. It was pretty straightforward. They just went over the principles of LNT and the requirements for crew members to earn the Wilderness Pledge Award. It is the duty of the Wilderness Guia to make sure that the crew members earn that Award. You also recieve some paperwork and a booklet with the seven trail discussion scenarios for each of the LNT principles.
Later that night is the Opening Campfire, which was really interesting and great. I just happened to be having a migraine the whole time, so I wasn't really enjoying it. After that, I was in bed as soon as possible, trying to sleep the headache off. We had to make our bus sometime around ten the next day, so we weren't in a terrible rush. Tomorrow we hit the trail!
