With the weather warming up, and me being worried about the Prius being stuck in the road at the Scout camp, today was a good day to head out there. I had a productive morning, and thought I could get down there and back quickly after picking up Kendall. I'd forgotten my phone when I left, so Kendall and I came back, I checked work, and she grabbed Buddy, and we headed out to Elbert.
It was a nice drive, and I enjoyed the time with Kendall. We talked and joked a bit with each other, and passed the time. We got down there and drove out to the campsite for our boys.
And found the road blocked. Well, not really blocked. There was a piece of twine tied across the entrance to the wooded area. I decided to walk down and see the road before driving and let the leaders know we were there. We didn't see anyone, so I got in the Prius and tried to drive it out. I couldn't back up at all, but I had some forward movement. I rocked it a little and managed to get about 15ft down the road, but couldn't get out of the ditch on the left side. I gave up, and Kendall said I'd gotten it "more stuck."
We came back and I untied the twine so I could drive down. Kendall was worried that we were breaking rules, and I wonder how long that will last. I reassured her and we headed down in Tia's truck. I hooked up the tow line to the back of the Prius and Kendall stretched it while I drove the truck closer. Then I hooked it on the front and pulled the Prius back. It was slow going, mostly because I didn't want to jerk anything, break the tow line, or have any mishaps. Eventually it was out enough that I could drive the Prius, so we parked the truck, I moved the Prius to the lot, and Kendall and I headed home.
I was going to take Kyle, but he wasn't around and I wasn't sure how long it would take. Plus I know he'd be annoyed if I took up his whole afternoon and we couldn't get it out. We don't need the car until Friday, and we have to go back then anyway, so we'll get it then. This way I'm also not worried about blocking anyone in that wants to leave before we get down there.
Buddy wasn't overly impressed, but he survived the journey, and Kendall was thrilled to bring him. We didn't see Delaney as the boys were out when we got there and then he was at his Railroading class. I saw his tent-mate, but he wasn't sure where Delaney was, so we just headed home.
