It is truly amazing what you can build with a little bit of wood, some screws, a drill, and a saw. These tools, along with a few other helpful borrowed items, helped make a simple and sturdy final product that does exactly what it was designed to.

This was an awesome trip with some awesome people. Our 3 day trip took place on the weekend that San Diego was on fire (May 16-18, 2014), so we were a little concerned about what would happen once we were out of contact for a couple days, but they took care of business and so did we.
