Inspired Camping... Smoothing the edges of roughing it!
Glamping and Cool Camping with Inspired Camping
Camping, for those who are particularly fond of this outdoor activity, is primarily a very satisfying act since it allows them to commune freely with nature as well as get away from the daily hustle and bustle for a few days at the least. Most campers can be recognized into what kind of a category they fall into through their style of camping.
Family campers, these days, wish to provide their children with an outdoor experience which is coupled with basic amenities as well, so as to...
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.

I'm writing this issue from a Scout camp that I've spent more than a year of my life camping at.

I hope you enjoy today's Hot Finds picks.

Norther Tier Practice Campout
Blog 13 Apr 2014 | 3:01 pm
This weekend was our first Northern Tier Crew outing as we work to prepare for our Trip that is coming the last weekend June this year. The Troop has two groups going each consisting of 6 Scouts and 2 adults. Originally both crews were going on the same date but the other crew had to change due to some scheduling conflicts. Up to this point we have had several crew meetings and some crew training during our March campout. This was the first time and perhaps the only time are camping just crew only. It was also the first time...
B.P.’s Blog – Training Scouts
Blog 13 Apr 2014 | 9:33 am
During his lifetime Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the worldwide Scouting movement, wrote many books and articles directed to Scouters.
Each Sunday I’ll publish a selection from his writings in the hope that you’ll draw inspiration and understanding from his timeless ideas.
WHEN I visit a district to inspect Scouts a big parade of them is held at which as many as possible are present, but though this is the only way in which a large number can be seen at one time, I think we must all feel — Scouts, Scoutmasters, and myself — that it is, after all, a formal...
