    Troop’s 1575 Venture Crew Takes on Wild and Wonderful West Virginia
By Ryan B.

"West Virginia: Wild and Wonderful" is exactly what Troop 1575’S Venture Patrol experienced from June 19th-June 23rd. We got to learn about all the things this state had to offer.

        On our first official day, we enjoyed white water canoeing. The Greenbrier River was perfect for this, its shallow waters make for perfect white water canoeing. We twisted and turned (and even turned over!) as we canoed ten miles. On the calmer parts of the river, we saw the beautiful, majestic mountains and forests this state had to offer.

        Zip-lining was also fun. After experiencing West Virginia by water, why not by air? This endeavor was quite enjoyable to anyone who wasn't deathly afraid of heights. Through the thirty or so zip-lines and sky bridges we learned a lot about native plants, the history of West Virginia, and some very funny jokes.

        Troop 1575 searched for a final thrill before we left for home, and we got it at white water rafting on the New River. We followed commands like "hunker down" and "paddle forward". White water rafting is much more extreme compared to white water canoeing, and you get high in the air just like zip-lining. But, on the calm parts of the river we floated in our life jackets awaiting another rapid.

        Other than thrills, we experienced the highest bridge in America in use. We also hugged a tree older than America itself. The thrills weren't the only reason we came here, the landscape was also a big component.

        Overall, we had a lot of fun, whether it was by air or by sea. West Virginia wasn't just a place to get a thrill
, but a place to bond with fellow troop mates.
