We had two cars with us because we needed to bring home more people that went with us, so we caravan-ed along until we were able to park and set up camp. I was impressed with myself that I backed the trailer into it's spot all be myself.
We said a little prayer with the girls and started casing the campground. The flash light John sent with Chad was sub standard and we were afraid he may have even been lost in the camp ground in the dark. I even walked across camp to the Jessop camp to see if he was visiting them, but there camp site was dark.
Anyway, John and I were worried and at midnight we called 911 to ask what we should do. They took down Chad's basic information and said they would send an officer out to the camp ground. I knew Chad couldn't be doing well by this time. None us us were prepared for the weather. Around 25 minutes after calling 911 Chad came into came. He was soaked.
He was so glad to see camp! We were glad to see his! Seriously, we came so close to ending that camping trip tragically. We are so grateful that God answered our prayer to find him before it was too late.
When we got back from the drive, we packed up lunch stuff and headed for the beach where the castle team was practicing for the competition. Everyone had fun playing in the sand and surf.
