The square knot is also know as the the reef knot. I have also hear it commonly refereed to as the “joining” or “friendship” knot. It is a simple knot, most commonly used to join two ropes of the same size together. However, The International Guild of Knot Tyers warns that this knot should never be used to join two ropes together. A sheet bend should be used instead. Knotting authority Clifford Ashley claimed that...[More]

One of the most inspiring stories from last summer’s Jamboree was about a participant named Sean Brame, who happens to be a quadruple amputee. Despite his disability, Sean is a Life Scout who participated in the full array of Jamboree activities. (The Jamboree Journal devoted a full spread to his story.)Given its flexibility and self-paced nature, Scouting is a great program for kids with all sorts of disabilities. Often, all that’s required is a little...[More]

Today we will take a look at the knife, a tool and a weapon all rolled in one. It all depends how you use it. When a clean and sharp knife is used properly it is relatively safe and extremely useful. However, it is first and foremost a knife.As a Scout at summer camp one year, one of my fellow Scouts was sitting at the picnic table carving a stick. The knife slipped into his...[More]

So how are you supposed to help Johnny gather up the...[More]

Setting a date is a critical first step in planning an Eagle court of honor. Until you’ve set a date, you can’t confirm a location, nail down your presenters, and send out invitations.But the date is important for another reason: It can greatly affect who shows up for the ceremony. A weekend date makes it easier for out-of-town guests to attend. Holding the ceremony on your troop’s meeting night ensures good participation by troop members....[More]

Rope was one of mans first inventions, even predating the wheel. Rope and knots are two words that go hand in hand, as one would be worthless with out the other. By definition a knot is a method of fastening or securing a length of rope by tying or weaving it.Knots in history have been associated with primitive religion, folklore, magic, superstitions, to cure evil, even to wave off sickness.

When I was still a young Scout, my Troop formed a high adventure patrol. This was before Venturing, and we were on a Air Force base 30 miles from the closet city. I did not have the gear for backcountry exploration, so my parents got me a external frame backpack for Christmas.
