Seattle Sports Co. AquaKnot 1800 Backpack Review
blog     20 Nov 2014 | 1:12 pm
Designed for rafting, canyoneering and cycling, the AquaKnot 1800 handles the elements. I set out for some casual wear-and-tear as well as some rough-and-tumble beating. I wanted to test the pack in the worst conditions; full submersion, beating on the rocks and a downpour. The pack definitely holds up and keeps dry in the rain and splashing of paddles. Made of a vinyl urethane, the pack holds out water and the shoulder straps dry within an hour or so with average temps. The pack is comfortable for a casual hike or having to go around town, the waist straps are not...

Don’t stress out!
Blog     20 Nov 2014 | 12:25 pm
Adult Scout leaders sometimes try to take on too much, try too hard to be perfect or try to out-do one another. Usually, these actions are because we are focusing on our own needs or want others to see what great things we are doing. This kind of thinking can lead to stress. That’s not […]...

1940s-era ‘Handbook for Boys’ praised in New York Times Sunday Book Review
Blog     20 Nov 2014 | 10:00 am
To the classics of American literature like The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, and To Kill a Mockingbird we must add one more: the Handbook for Boys, the BSA’s manual for life. Before you balk at the notion, read this piece published earlier this month in the renowned New York Times Sunday Book Review. In it, Dr. Edward O. Wilson, Distinguished Eagle Scout, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and Harvard professor, calls the Handbook a “classic of literature.” He defines that as “writing that stirs the soul” and “contributes to the growth of a civilization.” Wilson’s referring to the fourth edition of the Handbook, published from 1940 to 1948. That’s the one he...

Patagonia Tenkara Kit – #Tenkara review
Blog     20 Nov 2014 | 9:59 am
If you spend time in the lightweight backpacking or fly fishing communities, you’ve probably heard of Tenkara. This traditional, Japanese “simple flyfishing” method has been growing immensely in popularity in North America, so much so that Patagonia has brought out their own answer to this by partnering with Temple Fork Outfitters and producing a complete Tenkara kit, designed to give you the gear and instructions to get out and enjoy the magic of fly fishing in mountain streams and lakes. Patagonia sent me a setup with their 10’ 6” collapsible Tenkara rod to try and test. Let’s look at what’s included...

A New Scoutmaster – Chapter Six
Blog     20 Nov 2014 | 9:05 am
This is the sixth of twelve installments in a story that follows a new Scoutmaster, Chuck Grant, attempting to use the patrol method in a troop that has forgotten how. I’ve based this work of fiction on the stories shared by readers and listeners, questions they have asked, and the advice I commonly share in reply. Scoutmasters can expect to encounter challenges and setbacks along the way. I’ve tried to avoid being unreasonable optimistic, or overly pessimistic about the progress we can make when we stick to the basics. Chapter One | Chapter Two | Chapter Three Chapter Four | Chapter Five Chapters will be published each Tuesday and Thursday. CHAPTER SIX Two weeks before our mountain climbing...
