Gluten-Free Cookies are Coming!
Blog     17 Sep 2014 | 8:14 pm
My name is Gabriella, and I'm a Cadette in Troop 8645 in Mobile. I have been a Girl Scout for almost five years, and in all that time, I still have not tasted a Girl Scout cookie. All of that will change this cookie season. Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, which is an Auto-Immune Disease that causes my body to attack gluten. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, spelt, rye, malt, and some oats. These attacks lead to damage on the villi, small fingerlike projections that line the small intestine and promote nutrient absorption. When the villi get damaged, nutrients cannot be...

AnySharp Pro Review
blog     17 Sep 2014 | 5:13 pm
Let me start by saying that I am neither a culinary professional nor a knife connoisseur. I am, however, naturally curious and the fact that the AnySharp Pro claims to be the “best knife sharpener in world” definitely piqued my interest, so I figured I would put it to the test. The AnySharp Pro and a few of the knives I used To say it exceeded my expectations is an understatement. There are a couple of features in particular that I found exemplary. First, the AnySharp Pro has the patented “PowerGrip,” which is essentially a suction cup that can be activated by...

Backcountry Photo Essentials: Wide-Angle Lens
blog     17 Sep 2014 | 12:19 pm
Glacier Peak It’s a chore to carry a full-frame DSLR on a long backpacking trip. I have one standard lens, a 24-105mm lens, which I have been using for some time and have been very happy with. Together, I would guess that these two items add about 4 pounds to my backpack. Because of this, I resisted the idea of getting a second lens— the added bulk and weight as well as having to change the lens often deterred me. What changed my mind and got me to add a second lens was nighttime imaging. Simply put, the shorter the focal length of a lens,...

Lewis & Clark Council's Soles4Souls Shoe Drive
Blog     17 Sep 2014 | 11:51 am
The results are in and are overwhelming! The support from the community and Scouting was spectacular! Not only did the Soles4Souls ( drive hit its goal of 25,000, but surpassed it and collected 33,127 pairs of shoes. The 52-foot semi-trailer was filled to its maximum capacity by the end of the day, and shoes continued to pour in. So much so, that they had to send another trailer to pick up the extra shoes! Thank you so much for your support!...

Lucky? Not Really.
Blog     17 Sep 2014 | 11:40 am
Saw this comment today: “He’s got a bunch of older Scouts who run his troop for him, he’s lucky!” Lucky? Not at all, that’s how Scouting works. “He’s got a bunch of older Scouts…” Yes, we have a bunch of older Scouts, when I think “older” I think about any Scout over thirteen. Younger Scouts are often just as capable, they just need someone to believe in them. “… who run his troop for him …” There’s a couple of problems with that. First it is “my” troop in the sense that I am technically a member of the troop, but: I am not a Scout, I don’t participate as a Scout, that’s not...

Scouts, Venturers and Explorers help open new San Francisco 49ers stadium
Blog     17 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
Need someone to hold your football-field-size flag during a pregame ceremony? Better call the Boy Scouts. That’s just what the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers did this past Sunday when they invited 180 Boy Scouts, Venturers, Explorers and adult leaders to help open their new Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. With 70,799 fans looking on (plus millions more at home), the Scouts and Scouters displayed the giant flag during pregame festivities. Lisa Sydes, marketing director for the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council, contacted me to share some photos and her impression of this “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.” One parent told her, “It was an amazing experience that my son will remember for the rest of his life.” That’s a big flag As you’d...
