The Habitat crew is continuing to have a phenomenal time up in the Adirondacks.  The work is still just as fun as it was on day one, with continued work ripping down the garage and back porch, wiring, painting, caulking, hammering, and general yard clean up after all their demolition.  Picnic lunches on a the beach (about a five-minute walk from their work site) have been relaxing and a great way to stretch their legs and cool off before returning to the work site.  Their rafting day was fun, and a good, refreshing break from all their hard work.  Everyone got a bit wet hitting the rapids, but the class three at the end was super sweet!  Yesterday was their group choice day, and the group decided to sleep in a little later than normal, followed by a big breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and a stroll through the main streets of Lake Placid.  People popped into different shops along the streets, checked out some of the Olympic areas and finished the evening with a movie in town.  The weather has been cooperating, and even this morning, waking up to distant thunder has since cleared up into a sunny morning!

Zach eigenbrodt

Born and raised in Wisconsin, Zach couldn't keep himself out of the woods when growing up. He started working at a Northern Wisconsin YMCA Camp as a wilderness trip leader while in college and fell in love with getting kids into nature. The smiles on kids faces after returning from a once in a life time wilderness experience is why he is here today. Zach brought his talents to Frost Valley YMCA, in 2014, when he started as the Trips Coordinator and soon was promoted to Adventure Director. Zach loves all forms of Wilderness exploration, though some would say his heart lies most with canoeing.
