Awhile back I wrote a series detailing my group camp kitchen which included an array of helpful tips and hints. Since I originally wrote this series many more Scouters have started to use InsaneScouter and I thought the series might help them, and some of you die-hards might like to take a look at it again. 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]

I was poking around YouTube and found myself hooked on the video below. The first gadget in this video is a cool camp chef stove with an oven, but the second gadget (around 1:10 into the video) is the sink. The sink stand and basin looks home-made from sprinkler pipe, some plumbing hardware, a wash basin with a drain in it, and a bucket to capture the water. But the foot pump to get the...[More]

Here is an idea on how you can organize and keep track of all those award cards you have or will receive while involved with scouting. Get a small, one-inch binder and various sizes of plastic sport card holders and sheet protectors. The sport card holders work great for all of the cards and sheet protectors are great for all the certificates. I also like to type up a list with all the award names,...[More]

I wrote about this DVD sometime ago and thought I would bring it up again as it really is a good film. Read my original review with promotional trailer ...I recently saw a message on one of the Scouting mailing lists I follow about this film. In a nut shell that person explain that the title of the film refers to the first BSA experimental camp at Silver Bay New York in the summer of...[More]
