Jamboree Day 6

Today TJ was lucky enough to go on ‘THE BIG ZIP-LINE’ — Can you tell I’m excited for him? Each troop was only given 3 tickets for this one, so it was kinda a big deal he got to go. He said his name was drawn out of the hat first. Of course, nary a pic of him ON the zip-line but I could tell how excited he was.

Here’s the BSA promo video for their zip-lines.

And some official BSA Flickr photos as well. I don’t think all photos are from the longer zip-line. TJ can tell us when he gets back.

So, due to a storm coming in all high adventure activities were closed at noon today. And the stadium show was moved up so they could still have their concert.

Crowds hiking in to the stadium:
