Bastrop Flood

Chris Sefcik, Crew Leader: Woah doggy was it scary. I woke up one morning about 3 to the sound of bullet puncturing rain, luminescent strikes of lightning so constant that my heart nearly missed a beat and thunder bolts so painstakingly loud that the explosions of my fear rippled long after each blast had past.

Miranda Bryant: There was talk of a tornado coming to the Bastrop. Even though our trailers move when you breathe, they have become every definition of a home to me. We fled to the bathrooms with only our most important belongings (Don Pedro and fruit snacks). More…

Patrick Helton: Early one morning the crew woke up to the unfamiliar dinging of rain. A storm was raging outside so the crew decided to go drink coffee in the bathroom. The brew of choice, Don Pedro, kept spirits high as we listened to a member play her violin. More…

Kevin Connor: As the storm, which some now call ‘the great flood’ ravaged the landscape, I slept peacefully in my trailer. I was woken at approximately 6am and not by the ravenous storm mind you, but by two violent baboons running around the trailer. More…

Crystal McLauren:  I am extremely excited about this crew.

Roy Neely: Hiking the red trail on Wednesday after the storm was a very interesting experience that illustrated the intense power of water and it’s impact on trail and soil erosion. More…
