Extracts from this document...

Introduction

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.

My caoch told me ?its only going to fill up more,? and i quickly began to envy my team mates who had a seat. this hour long train ride was going to take a lot longer. I put my headphones back in my ears. I watched as the early birds on my team were trying to see who could get off and on the train the most every stop. I was losing energy by just watching them; I had almost none to begin with. Finally, after what felt like hours we got off the train and entered the Portland Airport. New smells entered my nostrils some pleasant others not, the army of purple clad people marched on to the ticket counter. Neeway got our tickets and off we marched to the dreaded security. ...read more.
