Food Find: tapaz 2 go
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 10:28 am
I found tapaz 2 go at CostPlus World Market and had to try it out. They had the Classic Hummus flavor: A tub of shelf-stable hummus and a bag of lentil chips is tucked inside. Interesting concept and it works. The hummus doesn’t have the sharp flavors some shelf-stable brands have, is creamy and easily […] The post Food Find: tapaz 2 go appeared first on Trail Cooking & The Outdoors....

Scoutmaster Podcast 217 – Resolving Differences
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 10:05 am
Sponsored By Backers From time to time I receive email from Scouters who have some basic disagreement with the way the program is being presented in their unit. These disagreements aren’t over things that endanger Scouts, the disagreements are usually around the application of the patrol system or youth leadership. This can be very frustrating. What do you do if you find yourself in a situation like this? Listen to Scoutmaster Podcast 217 Podcast Archive The post Scoutmaster Podcast 217 – Resolving Differences appeared first on

Hello Spring!
blog     14 Apr 2014 | 9:38 am
Click to view slideshow. My Soul seeks to see life through the lens of Nature’s perspective. ~ Lee Hiller I love early morning light in the Forest.  Slowly rising the sun awakens a sweet song of life which echos across the Tree tops.  A song to my Soul as I move gently along the trails in Hot Springs National Park. Love to ALL!

Victim in Kansas City-area Jewish center shooting was a Life Scout
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 9:31 am
Updated April 15, 2014, with information on where to send donations and condolences. See end of this post. A senseless act of violence has taken a young Boy Scout from us too soon. Reat Griffin Underwood, a 14-year-old Life Scout who was working toward Eagle, was one of three victims in Sunday’s shootings at Jewish community centers in Kansas. The alleged gunman is in custody and is scheduled to appear in court today. I’d ask our Scouting family to please keep Reat’s family and troopmates in your thoughts and prayers during this tough time. Reat, a high school freshman, loved camping with his grandfather, father and brother. His grandfather was also killed in the...

Testing out our Cedar Strip Canoe
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
About a month ago I purchased my first canoe. Don't get me wrong, I've canoed since I was a kid (and took two of my kids on the Bowron Lakes last summer), I've just never had my own canoe. I saw a good deal on a project cedar strip canoe online and snapped it up the next day. It needs a bit of work, but it's lake worthy as is. So, I had to try it out with one of my kids. Unfortunately, the lake where we planned to go fishing was still covered with ice, so we traveled half an hour down...

Eagle Palms and Merit Badges
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
Steve sent in this question about Eagle palms: In terms of earning Palms. Do MB’s earned before getting Eagle count towards Palms? The wording on the BSA site is unclear to me. My oldest will be 15 in July and has to be in his PL position for about 4 months to be able to SMC for his Star Rank. We were wondering about Palms since there are a few scouts, younger than he is who started BS from Cubs and have well over 20 MBs already. Thanks! Steve Thanks for the question Steve. The merit badges for the Eagle palms can...
