Painting, planning, organizing- we've been working overtime for the past week and it was nice to finally relax with friends and family at launch party over at Lake Nokomis. The evening began on a high note with laughter, corn-nuts, and some goofy photo ops over by the lake but it wasn't long before the more inTENTS fun started.
While some friends and family took a spin on the lake in our newly swagged-out canoes, others vied for the #1 best time in our Campathalon race to see who could pitch a tent, blow up the sleeping pad, and curl up in their sleeping bag the fastest. Camping partners Natalie and Jay won first place and a sweet backpack donated to us by Columbia with an outstanding 2:14 pitch time.
While she was certainly missed, Lee left early and rocked a radio interview with KFAI (check out Natalie's initial interview here.) Be prepared to tune into KFAI every Wednesday morning to hear about our trip!
