The Webelos Den of Pack 12 and their parents, drove to the USS Yorktown in Charleston, SC ON Friday july 26, 2013. our cub master and other leaders thought it was a good trip to go on. We left Pikeville at 7am and drove south through Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and stopping at a Burger King to eat and to fuel our car. We then continued through South Carolina to Charleston and finally the Yorktown. It took us eight hours to get there. After we got there we went to the gift shop. We looked at some toy helicopters, model planes, Megalodon teeth, and bought a grenade and some patches. Finally we went on the ship. We walked across a bridge and up a long staircase to to the hangar bay. we listened to a man tell us the rules of the ship. After that, we climbed up two ladders to get to the berthing area where we would sleep for the next two nights. The beds were stacked three and four tall suspended by chains. I was on the third bunk next to my dad but below my brother Quinn. The mattress was very comfortable and I liked climbing up into it. After we laid out our bed, we we met mom and went out for pizza. The pizza was great. When we got back to the ship I went down in the engine room. We had a fire dril. later. I went to bed. The next morning I had breakfast in the galley. We crossed the bridge to get on a ferry to go over to Fort Sumpter. we listened to man explain about the fort. We went to the back of the fort and we got to raise the last flag that flew over the fort at the end of the civil war. We walked around the fort and went into the museum, where we saw canon balls and we looked at a muzzleloader our time at the fort was up and we rode the ferry boat back to the dock at the Yorktown. After we got back to the ship Isaiah Huffman, Quinn and I went on a helicopter ride around Charleston Harbor. We saw big boats,little boats from high above the harbor. After lunch, which consisted of a roast beef sandwich, chips and a pepsi, we went on the destroyer and a submarine. Back on the Yorktown, we climbed up to the flight deck and the captain's quarters. I saw many planes and a helicopter. We ate dinner back in the galley and after dinner we we went back through the ship. we saw a movie in the ship's theater called "Blue Angels" about the Navy's elite flying team. After the movie I went back up to the flight deck. later we took a shower and went to bed. The next day we went to the galley to eat breakfast. Our cub master said a prayer before we left to come home. Isaiah's Grandparents invited us to breakfast at IHOP. After breakfast we went down to have fun at the beach. The waves were awesome, but the water was not as clear as the water in the Carribean. We left Charleston and headed home. On the way dad wanted to stop at Sportsman's Warehouse. We stopped for dinner at the Mellow Mushroom, in Asheville, NC. The pizza was awesome. We got home very late due to all of our stops on the way back home. By Ty Helfen
