Day Ten: Closing

Today was the last day of the trip. We finished up the wall, and subsequently focused more on cleaning up and writing. As the day continued though, most of us grew a little restless, so we decided to play some croque and have a bonfire with our precious few hours left on Old Farm. We entered the final hours of the trip exhausted, but invigorated from a great week of work, adventure and writing. I think many of us finally found that country grit that Alistair had been talking so much about (I'm looking at you Lucas) and we had a great final day.

Our Wall: Complete

I know we all had an amazing time getting to know one another, building stone walls and writing, and I hope one day we will be able to bring our children, or even grandchildren to see what we did for one week out of our summer in 2013 (I apologize for stealing your thought, parent of a kid on the trip whose name Alistair wouldn't share, but this is a beautiful one).

Thank you to all the people who made this trip possible, thank you all who participated and finally, thank you all for reading.
