I knew earlier this year I would be coming to Oshkosh and that it would be my first time. But I really underestimated its greatness and I was shocked when the Manchester Mustangs started traveling up to Ohio then to Wisconsin and finally the next day I was in Oshkosh. And to believe two days ago I was in Kentucky packing clothes for a trip I thought was going to be mediocre. I traveled with my best friend Amber and my sister Michelle. They were so excited, but I thought I saw all there was to see of Oshkosh through videos on the internet and stories from other Pathfinders. I could imagine all in my head and it wasn’t much.
We started from Kentucky then stayed at another Pathfinders house in Ohio to start bright and early all the way to Wisconsin. May I mention that there was a delicious pizza place that made the best grilled cheese. After staying one night in a hotel half an hour away from Oshkosh (and honking at every car that was going to Oshkosh). We headed out bright and early to set up camp.
When we first arrived I thought I was dreaming!
“This is amazing!” Amber exclaimed as we drove into the entrance.
I immediately got my iPad out and started taking pictures for my classmates who unfortunately have to miss this event. When we were setting up camp I didn’t feel like I was in Oshkosh but when I was done I was like, “I’m in Oshkosh the greatest event of all time” I would set up ten thousand tents to come here. For adventure, for actives, for worship it all awaits for you and I. Oshkosh is a huge camporee. Who knows? Maybe you’ll be CHOSEN to come to the next Oshkosh Camporee of 2024. After all my sister said it best. “Oshkosh is the greatest camporee ever!” And I don’t think she’s wrong.
