Tomorrow I leave for a week long trip with First Descents. First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (age 18-39) impacted by cancer. The program that I have selected to participate in is their surf camp in Santa Cruz CA. I am REALLY excited to go. I hope that I will meet some great people and make lifelong connections. In the event that this doesn't happen, who cares - I'M GOING TO SURF CAMP IN CALIFORNIA FOR A WEEK! They hire a real deal local outfitter to work with us and I'll be staying in a converted lighthouse right on the coast.
I'm thankful that my family can get by without me, and grateful that we will all miss each other tremendously. I may have a chance to post updates throughout the week. If I am unable, I'll be sure to provide the full report upon my return!
