Fuzzy here, we just got back from our summer camp. We are very tired after what has been a great week, but everything is a big mess. Tents needed to be dried and cleaned, equipment needed to be put away. We did not think it was fair that the leaders had to do everything so Scout and I offered to help. But for some odd reason we were told to go outside and play........
We did all kind of great things at camp, we did rock climbing, kayaking, salmon fishing (my favourite) and of course singing at a camp fire..... (I still don’t know why the neighbours asked if Scout and I could stop singing, we sing quite well I think) But the greatest thing was just being outdoors, us being city bears we don’t get out into the woods enough we think. What makes me angry though is all the rubbish people leave in the woods, it seems some people just drop their rubbish everywhere they can. This harms all our furry friends in the woods.....but Scout and I (and our camping friends) made sure we picked up all the rubbish we saw and put it in a bin. I hope you all do the same when outdoors.
Scout and I also made loads of new friends at camp, not just with the campers but also with the furry creatures in the woods. We are looking forward to our next camp. As Scott from InsaneScouter has written a whole series about the camp kitchen, we asked him to take us out to demonstrate (and of course cook us a salmon), when this happens we will let you know.
Your cuddly friends,
Fuzzy and Scout

I think a Pinewood Derby at Maker Faire is a wonderful idea. My btrehors and I had a lot of fun as kids working on those cars with our father.Anonymous on said:I would like to see that. This is my last year to do Pinewood derby with my youngest son. We love working on the Make projects together. Other boys in the neighborhood are wanting to do the projects with us so we let them join in from time to time. I see them building more than a project when they work. They are becoming a group of young thinking men with a skill set that will aid them and others in the future. I am proud of them but the best part of all of this is the excitement and laughter they share. on said:I put together an adult pinewood derby this past March to raise money for Spina Bifida. The event was hosted at a local bar/lounge during happy hour and the track was placed right on top of the bar to make for easing viewing. There was no rules to the designs except that it could not exceed the length or width of a standard derby kit car and the cars could not be propelled by anything explosive.The cars people came with were great and some weighed a few pounds and one was powered by 12v computer fan. Despite all the designs the winner was a vintage car that a participant designed when he was in scouts in the 70 s. Go figure.
