Part 1: Mabel-Canton senior class trip diaries 2014

Day 1

By Emily Brumm & Kourtney Coyle

While most people were sleeping at 3 a.m. on the morning of Thursday, April 10, the Mabel-Canton seniors were already awake and preparing for the long day ahead. We had spent the past five years preparing for this day. All those years of paying class dues and fundraising had finally paid off. We sleepily waved goodbye to our parents as many of them quietly held back their emotions. Our first stop was for a quick bathroom break and to pick up our bus driver, Mark “the Shark,” and tour guide, Tom Spindler. After six hours we finally arrived in the Windy City and were more than ready to stretch our legs.

Our first stop was Willis Tower. Walking out onto the Skydeck was eerily exhilarating. Millennium Park became the next stop on our adventure, where we laid our eyes on the famous bean sculpture. After taking a drive by Lake Michigan, we headed onward towards Notre Dame University in Indiana. We toured the athletic complex and had the pleasure of watching the male diving teams practice in their speedos. After that, we boarded the bus yet again for another long drive. This time we ended in Maumee, Ohio, where we spent the night enjoying the pool and eating pizza. It had been a great start to the trip of a lifetime.

Day 2

By Sara Lind & Belle Sand

We started day two off early, waking up at 3:45. We left our hotel in Maumee, Ohio, and headed for Gettysburg, Penn. We stopped at truck stops in Ohio for breakfast and in Pennsylvania for lunch. After eating, we continued driving and ended up in Gettysburg around 1:30.

When we entered Gettysburg, we went to the visitor’s center. There they had weapons on exhibit and a small museum. After walking through the museum, we watched a short film and saw a cyclorama of the Battle of Gettysburg.

Our tour guide, Tom Spindler, led us on a walking tour through Gettysburg. Our first stop was at cannons. The boys and girls had a contest to see who could “fire the cannon” the fastest, and, of course, the girls won. We continued, stopping at many memorials and making our way to a national cemetery and the spot where Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address. Chelcie Busch, a classmate of ours, was lucky enough to be chosen as the person to read Lincoln’s Address. As we were finishing, it began to sprinkle.

Although it was sprinkling, we were able to wander around Gettysb .....
