Long day at Pre Pop Nye

We had a long day at pre pop nye at Bogart Park. The hardest thing about it was fire building, it took about 15 mininutes in the hot sun making little pieces of wood. The good news is we burned the string with our fire and finished. Later we went down to a river/stream and had fun making a dam made up with rocks and wood.

Are You ready for Pop Nye?
