Today was another great day. We worked the first half of the day and then did some of the low ropes the second half. We then went to dinner and to one of the local Austin attractions. The attractions was bats. That's right. Every night between April and August the bats fly out from under a local bridge (we are talking thousands- by August 1.3 million) and they fly around the area. They eat between 10,000-30,000 pounds of insecet per night:) They fly all night and come back during the day. So we went and saw them heading out near dusk; it was quite and adventure. Right now are are headed to bed and hope to get some rest for our drive tomorrow, approx. 700 miles tomorrow and 270 on Saturday morning. See ya.
