So a new online tour plan is coming. See scout wire http://scout-wire.org/2012/02/29/new-tour-and-activity-plan-to-be-unveiled/. Apparently councils are really going to stop approving tour plans.

You can also badger you DE to let let you play with it now.Here is an excerpt:The new online tour and activity plan has been developed and will soon be ready for use. When compared to the former tour permit process,...[More]

Nature abhors a vacuum – and so do strong leaders. When your senior patrol leader doesn’t react quickly enough to get the troop’s attention or deal with some minor problem, there’s always an adult around who’s all too happy to step into the breach with an authoritative “Signs up!”The problem with that (other than the fact that the Scout sign is supposed to be a silent signal, of course!) is that when an adult takes...[More]

This group of boys, living shortly after the turn of the 20th century, decide to form their own fledgling Boy Scout troop – the first in their area.

My good friend Jeff Walker, founder of The Perfect CampfireGrill, has designed and built an amazing line of grills to cook over a campfire. Jeff's grills are made from heavy-guage steel and have a patented one inch raised edge that allows the cook to put food up to the edge without it rolling off into the campfire. Not only are his grills affordable, they are simple to setup. Put the stake in the ground,...[More]

Remember, if you are having fun everyone else is having fun. When we get into the second half of the Scouting year, us Leaders start looking at the “Finish Line” aka the end of the Scouting year.

So here are the links to the originally posts. Enjoy! Kamp Kitchen - Food Storage Kamp Kitchen - Packing...[More]

This is a cool video I stumbled across with a guy showing how he hangs a hammock in his mini-van. All he really does is hook each end of the hammock in the doors, one in the front passenger door, and the other in the back cargo door. Then, by using the clips he has on the ends of the rope, he hooks the two ends of the hammock together. Take a look. ...[More]
