THE YEAR>>> 1997
This was the 2nd event GTD ever provided and our only event in 1997 (just like in 1996). It was our 2nd Annual Adventure Trip (what we now call "SLAMMED") with the college age students from First Baptist Church of Indian Rocks. This was the only Adventure Trip that that was more than 5 days long. This trip lasted 7 days and we learned the hard way that the longer we make the trip then participation will naturally decrease. Activities included camping, white water rafting, mountain biking, Six Flags, 2 days of rock climbing, touring Gatlinburg, bungee jumping, and laser tag. The cost: $150. Of course, our main focus was growing closer to God and each other. Trips like this are relationship accelerators. Our daily devotions were taken from "Experiencing God".
We had so many classic moments, hilarious happenings, and instant memories that we still joke about 19 years later... Where's Waldo?!, fudge rounds, walking through thorns, "I will give you $5 so you can eat... in exchange for all the fireworks you just bought."
There is no substitute for great memories!
