Sunday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 17, 2015
Blog     21 May 2015 | 11:52 pm
My 5 Junior Girl Scouts completed their Bronze Award project yesterday and as you can see they had some help. One of the points of the project is to make it into a community effort and we were able to get local Boy Scouts to help out. In the end there were over 40 youth and adults taking part. Troop 763 from Dillon, SC wins the award for the most unusual item pulled from the river - a shopping cart! Right about now I know an eBay user that is glad he refused some offers to end his auction early with...

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter May 15, 2015
Blog     21 May 2015 | 11:42 pm
I have a treat for you in today's issue. Over the last few years Russell Smart has put up a Scout history display at the annual council Exporee for the Blue Ridge Council (Greenville, SC). This year he outdid himself with 90+ tables, stand-up displays, posters, docents, and several rounds of Scouting Heritage merit badge. Over 2,000 Scouts attended the event. I've got a video linked in below that was filmed by a Scout who attended and there is lots of eye candy to behold. It does seem like since the 100th anniversary of the BSA there has been a renewed...

As stated, this is the third time in the history of the Order of the Arrow that a program such as this and allowing a patch...

Ahnu Coburn Hiking Boots Review
Blog     20 May 2015 | 10:31 pm
While I’m a fan of lightweight trail runners, there are times when they just don’t cut it. For muddy trails, heavy loads and adventures off the trail I need something tough, supporting, but not too heavy. My go-to boot for these tasks in the past year has been the Ahnu Coburn. This is a long term review of Ahnu’s Coburn Boot that I was sent for review last spring. It’s been through a lot of testing in that year and not only are they still going strong, they’ve found a permanent space in my footwear rotation. The Ahnu Coburn hiker is an aggressive,...

Patch Trading
Blog     20 May 2015 | 5:29 pm
One of the fun traditions of Scouting is patch trading. I have been acquiring patches now since about 1978. I would like to say that I have a ton of patches, but I really don’t. You see, I did like most Scouts and Scouters do and did, I got a patch for going to Camporee or Summer camp, a new Lodge Flap, or a special event and threw them in a box. No rhyme or reason, just a box of patches. Over the years some got tossed and others given away. I wish I knew then what I know now. Then...

Menu: Hiker Trash Approved Vittles
Blog     20 May 2015 | 2:18 pm
Memorial Day Weekend is coming up this week – and that means it is the “official” start to backpacking season, no? But you say….I’m too busy to go pack food. I hear I can go to Costco and buy a bin of freeze-dried meals. Or…I’ll survive on ramen. Or a stack of flour tortillas and […] The post Menu: Hiker Trash Approved Vittles appeared first on Trail Cooking....

Video: Scott Lagasse gives us a tour of his NASCAR truck
Blog     20 May 2015 | 2:11 pm
Scott Lagasse Jr. is as real as it gets. The NASCAR driver is a big supporter of Scouting. He races with BSA and STEM Scouts logos on his cars and trucks. He makes local news when he drops Cub Scouts off at school in his race car. He let Scouts build a car for him at the 2013 National Jamboree. To the shock of some of his competitors, he even drove the Scout-built car in a real race — and won! This week Scotty is at the BSA’s National Annual Meeting in Atlanta. Instead of taking the week off, he’s meeting BSA volunteers and professionals to find out how...

Video: Inside the Vortex, the STEM Scouts mobile lab
Blog     20 May 2015 | 12:32 pm
Boys and girls won’t have to travel far and wide to participate in STEM Scouts. They can just let all the fun of STEM Scouts come to them. I’m at the BSA’s National Annual Meeting this week, and I got to check out the Vortex, the STEM Scouts mobile lab. It’s a whole lot of STEM Scouts awesomeness on wheels. STEM Scouts, for those who don’t know, is a new program that’s expanding to include 13 councils this fall. Paul Sharp, Assistant National Director of STEM Programs, gave me a quick tour. I put together this video, which is the first of several I’ll make from the...
