The adventure club excels at seeking out the strange and unusual throughout Michiana, so it should come as no surprise that a group of twelve of us found ourselves on a Three Oaks farm Saturday, eagerly awaiting the launch of a rocket-propelled port a potty. Despite the frigid temperatures and over an hour of delays, we stuck it out. Finally, the countdown began. 3…2…1…Blast off! The rocket reached a height of over 1000 feet, landed ungracefully less than two feet from some lucky person’s truck, and history was made!
After the launch, we headed to Galein River Country Park. Although small, the park offers a 60 ft tall canopy walkway which gives you some pretty spectacular views of the river and surrounding trees. It’s also a totally handicap-friendly park.
Finally, we headed to one of our favorite local eateries, Pleasant House in Thee Oaks where we dined on little pies and really filling desserts.
