New Northwoods Toys
Yesterday the kids and I had to go over to Camp Birchwood for Boys to try out their new log for log rolling. We also purchased a log so we could practice log rolling at Voyageur but our log doesn’t look anything like theirs. How could two logs look so differently?
Our log is one made from a tree while theirs is not. It doesn’t look intimidating as it floats in the water but like a mechanical bull it throws you off in a hurry. World Champion Log Roller Jenny Atkinson even had to give it a try when she was up for a visit the other day. While the synthetic log doesn’t roll exactly like a real log it will give the campers at Birchwood a good idea at just how challenging log rolling can be.
I’m hoping that by having our own log at Voyageur I’ll be able to last on the log for 8 seconds by the end of the summer. I figure if that’s a number they use as a goal for staying on a bull then it should work as a goal for me. Wish me luck.
