Day 2…Arrived at the Summit!

As mentioned yesterday, we were on the 10:00 am bus for the Summit from the Charlotte Airport.  While at the hotel, we ran into Jonathan who is is the leader of the contingent from Liberia.  Many International Scouts are at the Jamboree to see how we do it, for the 2019 World Jamboree is at the Bechtel Summit too. Below is a photo of Jonathan and Jay who I met yesterday from my Twitter post earlier today.

So after after about a four hour ride to the Summit, we unloaded and checked in at the Welcome Center which is really nice and super efficient in getting people checked in.

After finding my tent and their LOTS of them, I went down to the Hometown News / Boys Life area where I’ll be working.  The Hometown News Team was hard at work getting things set up but the Boys Life team was already gone, so we’ll see them tomorrow. They are in large interconnecting tents, so should be lots of synergy.

So I took the bus back to Base Camp E where most of the staff is and had dinner with Jay and made lots of new friends.  As you might imagine, these are group of really dedicated Scout leaders and to feed then all there is a dining room that can serve 10,000 of them…the place is HUGE!  Food is pretty good too!

Went to the Protestant Staff worship service which was well attended right after dinner in the dining hall as a Scout is Reverent!
