SSP Walker River: Sunday

We left LCC on Sunday morning at 8:30 with our whole crew except one. We picked Joanna up 3 hours later at our lunch stop in Soda Springs where she and her mom were having a little mini vacation.

We made great time, arriving in Schurz around 2:45, and were greeted by an enthusiastic group of SSP staffers. We played games while waiting for the other groups to show up.

We are being housed on the Walker River Paiute Reservation in the tribal community gym. We are lucky to have showers on site and we eat our meals at the Methodist church just a short walk away.

After dinner we were all split up into our work teams for the week. There are 8 teams whose work will range from building a ramp to roofing to painting.

The energy is great all around so I expect we will have a great week.

6am wake up call is coming soon. Gotta start working before it gets too hot. The work begins today.

Sunset on Schurz. Chow time! Our enthusiastic staff Schurz United Methodist Church where meals are prepared and eaten. Playing basketball in the gym. This is also where we will be sleeping and doing program all week.
