I, Dessa, got a little cabin fever yesterday, so I drove about 20 minutes down the road. It was so dang pretty, I just had to share.

We would share some lovely photos of the new and improved bunkhouse to show how Far Out we feel 2016 is going to be for us down here in Bluff, but it got done just in time for there to be friends already staying in it. We hope you, too, are surrounded by friends, peace, and adventure in the new year…

Do you ever feel you’re missing out on FOE fun during the winter months? Well have no fear…unless your idea of fun is laying carpet and building new bunk beds. Hope you’re all as excited as we are to see the end results.
