And so (almost) concludes the 2016-2017 Outdoor Tomfoolery…

What we did:

  • Lisa, Michael, and the Wolfpack went kayaking, and the Wolfdog himself said it was rad, so you know it was rad
  • The Bossi duo slept overnight on Runnals and successfully avoided moisture while also befriending the alarm clock/dog named Rudy
  • On Saturday, people journeyed to the Climate March in Augusta and marched against climate
  • A crew led by Max and Soren and driven by a daring Logan ascended both Crockers on snowshoes – a nude moose was spotted
  • Martin carried sap across campus and Roxanne subsequently approved of the resulting syrup
  • Maddy and Amy led a spring break reunion trip to Round Top
  • A whole slew of folks got WFA certified with an unidentified instructor!
  • Park and associates went swimming at the Hume Center and is planning a sequel for Wednesday
  • Sam and Logan led a trip to Tumbledown, and were blessed with blood sweat and nudity
  • Katie led her grand ‘rents on a walk along the Kennebec, no one fell in
  • Lilli mocked (hammocked for the uninformed) in the arb and encountered scary frogs
  • Soren went to Popham Beach on a field trip and watched ospreys eat seals
  • Spencer skied in Tuckerman’s Ravine with Collette and her parents, mucho snow was present
