Golden Gate Bridge Walk

– Written by Troop Scribe Nathan G.

For the August 9 meeting, T27 chose to do something different: we walked across the Golden Gate Bridge. We arrived at 5:00 at the church, and when everybody was there we were divided into our driving groups. We made a stop at In & Out before continuing on to San Francisco. We arrived by the bridge at around 7:00, and started soon after. Along the way, Mr. Moriarty gave us some history about the bridge. Some scouts decided to make it a race. At the end of the bridge, we had a bathroom break, then started on our way back. It was getting a little dark by this time, but this didn’t stop some scouts from running across most of the way. From one end of the bridge to the other and back, the distance was about 3.4 miles. This type of meeting may become more common in the future, especially in the summer. It was a refreshing change from the usual meeting.
