September 24, 2012 - Ruby Fernandez

Hola Ecoee Today we started our second part of the expedition. After seeing our friends / family we got back at Horn Field Campus to get the last things ready for the west. At 8:00 am most of us were ready to start this new chapter, with mixed feelings I knew it was not going to be an easy day. First thing on the list, grocery shopping, then go to campus and talk to students about our experiences and outcomes of what ECOEE has left us. It was really cool to see how the students got excited from what we are doing and how we are becoming role models for future ECOEE generations. It made me think how lucky we are to live this experiences and challenges. We came back to horn field and I felt really proud of our group to see how everyone got done their tasks and how efficient they were on packing and getting the trailer done. This allowed us to leave time for talking with more students about ECOEE. It was funny and cool to see how some of our friends were impressed and excited to hear all our stories from Canada. It is amazing to think how much you can learn in the outdoors and how good is to have this setting as a classroom. As the day was coming to an end, we brief about our first traveling day and the LOWS got some feedback from Jeff. Main conclusion, see other options before making decisions. Although it was a hard day it was good to have everything done and be ready for the west. I cannot wait to see all the national parks that we are going to visit and meet professionals on the way. All this, at the end, is going to make us better professionals and be prepared for what the real world has to offer. See ya!!!! Ruby Fernandez
