Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 3:42 pm
Do you have trouble coming up with great stocking stuffers for boys?  I know I do!  I want to buy things they’ll like and use, but I don’t want to spend a lot of money. I searched through several lists on Pinterest looking for items that would be awesome for our Cub Scouts.  Things related […]...

Jack Rabbit Posing Game
Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 2:17 pm
Our Crew president led this jack rabbit posing game at our last meeting. It is a fun game for teenagers, but would work for other age groups also. The idea of this game is to remember different poses and to strike the correct pose quickly. There are lots more possible poses, but I can’t remember all of the ones I have seen. Add your own to the comments. Jack Rabbit Posing Game Have everyone stand in a circle with one person (the leader) in the middle. The leaders points to a person in the circle and that person, along with the person to...

Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 10:08 am
Nothing says “Happy Holidays!” like donating a coat to a child in need, or participating in a canned food drive for the community’s less fortunate. And every year, Girl Scouts continue the tradition of being leaders in their homes, schools, and communities by taking the lead on these “Give Back” projects.We couldn’t be prouder of girls across the nation who become a little more selfless and extend a hand in order to make a difference. So how is your Girl Scout Troop giving back this holiday season? We’re excited to hear from you for this season’s #GirlScoutsGiveBack campaign.We want  to...

Martha Bar Natural Energy Bars review
Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 9:30 am
I am a compulsive chocolate lover, which is to say that a day without chocolate always seems to have a bit of a hole in it. I am also the type of person who runs from one thing to another, literally and figuratively: running, travelling, working a couple jobs, etc. so you can imagine how pleased I was to receive some energy bars to try that had a thick layer of chocolate covering them. They were Martha Bars. The taste was was very satisfying, with a crunch and a chewiness that reminds you that all of the natural ingredients are real and high quality,...

Food Find: No Nut Butters
Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 9:28 am
I’ve loved The Sneaky Chef products (and her great books as well!) for quite some time. When I saw the Kickstarter for bringing a chocolate version of the No-Nut Butter to the masses, I was all in. As you can, the Kickstarter got funded and I had jars of deliciousness in front of me recently. […] The post Food Find: No Nut Butters appeared first on Trail Cooking....

Anchoring your tent
Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 6:18 am
Here is a technique for anchoring your tent.  In this video, I demonstrate using a snow stake.  A stick works just as well.  Snow stakes are versatile and light and are worth carrying into camp. It is important to anchor your tent well.  Winter conditions typically include heavy winds so no matter what or how much gear you have in your tent, to keep your tent and the rest of your gear in good repair, anchor your tent well. Have a Great Scouting Day! Filed under: Backpacking, camp skills, Camping, gear, High Adventure, Winter Camping Tagged: backpacking, camping, camping gear, Winter Camping...

Boys or Scouts?
Blog     15 Dec 2014 | 5:00 am
We sometimes use the terms interchangeably. We have a boy-led troop with boy-led patrols. They read Boys’ Life. “Never do anything a boy can do” is a key piece of advice, and Baden-Powell made frequent references such as “The Scoutmaster teaches boys to play by doing so himself” and “The boy is not governed by […]...
