Bringing Back the XC Road Trip: Gearhead Style
blog     24 Sep 2014 | 4:11 pm
A life lived authentically is priceless. What could fuel this sentiment better than taking a XC road trip with frequent use of your backpacking gear? Lets face it, we live in a time and age where true adventure is getting harder to experience.  The classic ‘American Road Trip’ has become a thing of the past. So it’s time to bring it back and create new, life-long memories that will provide the back-to-nature experience and adventure that is absent in most people’s lives. There is a true richness to traversing the land one mile at a time. So much natural beauty is...

Hummingbird – Seeing Past The Camouflage
blog     24 Sep 2014 | 2:26 pm
Click to view slideshow. I don’t set up shots, it is all random luck.  Serendipitous moments captured while hiking.  When I was a child I was always good at the ‘spot the difference’ puzzles.  It has trained my mind to see the the anomaly in the landscape on the trail.  On many occasions I will take photographs not seeing with my naked eye what my mind mind sees.  Yesterday I followed the flight of a tiny juvenile Blue-Headed Vireo (photos later).  Once it landed my mind let me know to photograph the tangle of leaves and vines below its perch. When I...

BSA asks Scout units, councils to stop using phrase ‘Fun With a Purpose’
Blog     24 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
The Boy Scouts of America protects its brand and trademarks. We wouldn’t let a company use our red, white and blue fleur-de-lis or the phrase “Prepared. For Life.” without permission. In that same vein, we should respect the rights of others to protect their trademarks. That’s why the BSA is asking for help from packs, troops and crews to stop using the phrase “Fun With a Purpose” and remove it from promotional materials and unit websites. The phrase, often used with Cub Scout-related activities, is a registered trademark owned by the publishers of the popular Highlights children’s magazine. Don’t worry. Your unit isn’t in trouble or getting sued; the BSA doesn’t expect any legal action from Highlights. In fact, the BSA...
