We started at the Sikes Adobe building, which was one of the first houses in the Escondido area. We walked under the I-15 bridge over Lake Hodges, and found ourselves on a loopy trail that took bends around the lake. I was walking by a specific portion of the trail, and I saw all the Eagle Scout project that have been done. I'm in Eagle Scout crazed right now, because as of today I officially have a full year before I am unable to get that award. Anyway, I saw a really cool conservation project and a few benches around the area.
After five miles of hiking through the area, we had lunch. It is my birthday today, so I dug into some chocolates and cookies and a whole bunch of other things because I have a few friends that genuinely love me enough to give me food on my birthday.
Nothing notable happens until Reece, a great friend of mine, started talking about different types of carries. I showed him this one carry where you grab your wrist and the other person's wrist to form a square with your hands so another third person can sit down on it. We carried Erina for a good 400 ft before I slipped and fell. I didn't get banged up too bad, but Erina got a little gash on her arm. I pulled out my first aid kit and quickly fixed her up.
I guess the moral of the story is this: "Don't carry people when you're on an incline, or apparently, if I'm involved"
