Driving down the West Side Highway in Manhattan nearly every day can have its ups and downs. On Friday, I found myself in the midst of heavy traffic as I exited the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and onto the West Side Highway, en route to Rockland County, NY. I listened every ten minutes to the traffic report, trying to plot my best escape from the city.

The SCA Sandy Recovery Leader Crew has come to a close… a month goes by way too quickly! It’s truly been an amazing, inspiring experience for me. For the final week of the crew, we switched things around, and split the two teams up.

I’ll be a crew leader blogger for the new Hurricane Sandy recovery team at Gateway National Recreation Area! I’m really looking forward to leading and collaborating on this new, HUGE recovery we’re about to undertake with about 24 crew leaders and over 100 high school members!

The first week of the SCA Sandy Recovery Leader Crew at Gateway National Recreation Area was excellent – filled with site visits, planning, stretching, wheelbarrows, shovels, rakes, hard work, goals reached, education, team building, and so so so much sand and debris in places it was not located prior to Sandy!

There is always a moment when a team truly becomes cohesive. I think we reached this point during the second week of the NYC Sandy Recovery Leader Crew. The previous weekend, all of the NYC crew leaders attended the New Jersey crew leader training, which is always a wonderful bonding experience.
