Our amazing trip took a wild turn this morning when a huge unexpected storm front came through. I’ve never seen a place go from zero to insane like this lake did, we are all home after a 13 hour ordeal trying to get off the island safe. We are exhausted and a little battered and bruised but we all worked together and got home safe and sound.
Giant waves on one side and huge falling Pine trees on the other we were very lucky. Other campers boats sunk off the front of the island where we were but we saved both of ours and came back unscathed. People were scrambling helping everyone, a local guy had lived there his whole life and never seen anything like it.
This video is after it had died down and as we walked back in a huge tree fell and just missed a couple camping next to us. I ran a few miles today back and fourth through the trees and on the first one all I could hear were giant trees falling around me, one of the wildest moments of my life. So many crazy things happened today we will talk about this day for the rest of our lives, lucky to have a great group of people that all stuck with each other and got through it.
Happy to be home tonight.
