Extracts from this document...


Boise Idaho XC Trip         P.5 “Eliot wake up” my dad said as he opened the curtains in my room. No bright morning sun peered through them, just deep unforgiving darkness. “I’m awake” I mumbled very convincingly. I took the liberty to roll away from my dad, grab the blankets he took off me, and tried to go back to sleep. “Its 5:45 we are leaving the house for the max station in 45 min, so get dressed and put all your travel stuff in the hallway” and he left my room.
