ToCo Notes / Narrative:
The hitch went on without a hitch. The crew felt good about the hard work they had been doing. As they had worked very hard and had completed 9 days worth of work in 8 days, the project leader gave them some time to swim in Cave Lake. The crew also discovered no-see-ums in swarms. There were two campfires and apple crisps were made one night.
