3: For her 21st birthday, Sarah and Jessi went to an "ABC" party: Anything But Clothes. It was a theme party where you had to come wearing an outfit made of anything but clothes! | February In February, Sarah hit the road for Mississippi. She spent time with Josh and Rachel, Pride, Drew, and of course her little, Alex, and Jgar.
4: March Sarah headed to California for a couple weeks in March to visit her friends for her birthday. She and Michael drove up to Bear Mountain for a few days of skiing, and a Ray-J concert.
5: US-101 | After skiing, Sarah made her way up the coast, stopping in Santa Barbara and Monterey Bay. | In Santa Barbara she stayed with Brendan and Katie McDonagh. After discovering the definition of "power hour," and spending a day recovering, she took to the streets and beaches of SB. They ranted tandem bicycles, and walked along the beautiful Santa Barbara coastline. After Santa Barbara, Sarah drove up to Monterey to visit Clint and Kim. Nothing says "fun" like a good old-fashioned drag ball!
6: The last stop on Sarah's trip was Livermore, at the Sehmsdorf Ranch. It was the first time the whole gang had ever all been together at the same time. 4x4s, horses, guns, crossbows, bonfires, and best friends.

15: RIP Trevor Tonsing December 13, 1993-December 17, 2009 | Trevor spent over a month total at Wolfeboro in 2009. He was a scout for a week, and then worked as a montaineer for two straight sessions. Despite being smaller than most of the scouts,, he had more energy than the entire staff combined. Trevor brought laughter and VOLUME to every area of camp, and having him around brightened everyone's experience at camp. I know i am not the only one whose favorite camp memories all involve Trevor. Trevor suffered a heart attack the day after his 16th birthday, and was taken off life support a few days later. He will be missed.
16: August | A couple days before the end of camp, Sean flew to a nearby town to meet me after banquet. Flying in Santa Monica with Matty! | After camp, Nick and I went and got tattoos. He got the Wolfeboro logo, and I got a superman logo, for Josh.
17: In August, Sarah flew out to Oklahoma to see Sean, and then they both took a road trip down to Mississippi.
18: Because so many of us were unable to attend his funeral, we decided to have a memorial improv show for Josh. We made it a fundraiser, and gave the proceeds to Brees' Dream Foundation. At the end, we had a massive vocal jam, in the tradition of New Orleans jazz funerals. | Sarah's pledge sister at the memorial. Kathy, Torie, Jamie, Rachel, and Elizabeth. | Sean and Sarah at Zachary's | Don't Stop Believin'!
19: RIP Joshua Blaine Derise November 15, 1983- August 10, 2009 | I met Josh my first week of college. We were part of Mission: Improvable together, and became fast friends. Road trips, comedy shows, trying our best to get kicked out of Walmart, and sometimes hospitals. In September 2008, he married my other best friend, and pledge sister, Rachel Langley. Josh taught me to live harder, and laugh hardest; he was everyone's Superman. In August of this year, Josh passed away in his sleep.
20: September | In September, Sean flew Sarah out to Oklahoma, for a weekend camping and fondue with all the musketeers.
