Eagle Tower is just about the most important place in the world to my friends and me. The first Outrider expedition ever was a hike to Eagle Tower. For us, it's kind of like the spot where my friends and I became Outriders. So when we found out that a mining company was going to tear the tower down in five days, we had to plan one last expedition there.
One thing I can say about expeditions is that most times they turn out a lot differently than you planned. For instance, here is a bunch of things we didn't know would happen in Pine Hollow:
1 THAT WE WOULD RUN INTO A GROUP OF KIDS FROM UP IN THE BLUFFS WHO SORT OF FELT THE SAME WAY ABOUT EAGLE TOWER AS WE DID
2 THAT OUR FRIEND BETTINA WAS CONCEALING SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT FROM ALL OF US
3 THAT THE MINING COMPANY WOULD START DYNAMITING FIVE DAYS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
Oh, and I probably should mention that we discovered a lost city and were almost trapped in there for eternity, but you can read all about it in the rest of my blog....
