On August 31st, 2009, we traveled down to Montana to begin our adventures outside of the classroom. Two days after arriving we left on a rafting trip, quite similar to the one last year. The difference was that our time outdoors didn't end with the rafting trip, but continued straight into a camping after that. In total, we spent 9 nights outdoors. To put that in perspective, we had 10 days without showers, toilets, stoves, houses, tents (we had tarps), and many other luxuries which we normally enjoy. Here are some pictures from that time:

Before taking off, we loaded things up:

Then we got our picture taken by a tree:

At the end, we got our picture taken by the van:
