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...


Understanding the Troop Flavor
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am

Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 5:00 am
Having more money than we could ever imagine is a dream far from the reality of most Scouters. Indeed, most of us give up a lot – not only our time, but our money and other resources – because we … Continue reading →...

Solar Powered Camping: The Possibilities Have Just Got Very Exciting!
Blog     14 Apr 2014 | 3:00 am
Inspired Camping... Smoothing the edges of roughing it! Glamping and Cool Camping with Inspired Camping Solar power technology has recently taken a giant leap forward and this has an abundance of possibilities for camping and how we use power while we visit the campsite. Now solar powered tents, camper vans, caravans and any other method of camping can use sunshine which is less intense to gather energy. Yes, even on a cloudy day! Until now the most important element of generating power from the sun was to have bright sunshine. This is now longer the case as the National Physical Laboratory have recently...


Dreams and Decisions
blog     13 Apr 2014 | 11:22 pm
I had a dream once.  It was to make my Troop the perfect Scout Troop. I just joined Scouting and I was excited about the whole thing. I knew if I worked hard enough, I could become a leader and iron out all the wrinkles that I observed around me. Six crazy years later, I still have that dream, and it is still just a dream. I've learned a lot through Scouting so far, but this is one thing that strikes me as particularly important and applicable to all other areas of life: no one can simply decide to make a dream...

Flag Point Lookout
blog     13 Apr 2014 | 5:42 pm
Sometimes you have to disconnect to reconnect, and what better to get away from society than staying at a forest fire outlook.  With various locations deep in the wilderness along the Northwest and parts of the Midwest, these forest fire outlook stations are available for rent during the off seasons.  In January 2014 my friend Christina and I did just that.  We made our reservations for Flag Point Lookout less than a week in advance, grabbed our bulging packs and jumped into the car heading towards Mount Hood, Oregon.
