Hi all, Fuzzy and Scout here, are you all as excited as we are as it is almost Halloween. We have been asking Baloo for our costumes for aaaaaaaaaaaages and finally we got them :)Although if it was up to Baloo we would have been dresses as salmon, but that would be just silly. Can you imagine bear cubbies dressed as salmon, now if it was to eat salmon we would agree. Anyway Fuzzy...[More]

This post is just to liven things up some. Here some jokes I found all over the web I hope you enjoy. Starry Skies JokeThe Scoutmaster and his Tenderfoot son went on a camping trip. As they lay down for the night, the Tenderfoot said, "Dad, look up into the sky and tell me what you see". His Scoutmaster father responded, "I see millions and millions of stars". Tenderfoot Son: "And what does that tell...[More]

This tip is thanks to Mark Ray from http://www.eaglebook.comGo to enough Eagle courts of honor, and you’ll eventually see someone skip his lines in the script or read someone else’s lines by mistake. That’s no surprise considering that few Scouters are public speakers by profession.A simple way to minimize such problems is to create a color-coded master script and place it on the lectern in a three-ring binder. How can you color-code your scripts? If...[More]

This post is going to talk about the 10 knots every Scout should know. You will see the knot in the photo, reference its name and read what that knot is used for. This post is more about understanding the uses of the knot then how to tie it. I find learning to tie a knot is more a hands on kind of thing. 1.Overhand - This is probably a pretty good place to begin...[More]

Sierra cups are a amazing tool for light weight camping. As you can see in the photo they are really just a metal cup. However in backpacking it serves as your cup, bowl and plate. They are light weight and easy to clean. They are also pretty durable so they will take the abuse the boys dish out. The two shown in this picture are, I would venture to guess, around 20 years old. There...[More]

Jamboree On The Internet is also known as JOTI, which is different then JOTA (Jamboree on the air). JOTA takes place using ham radios while JOTI is mostly done using a computer and a chat room. The ultimate goal of both is to meet other Scouts and Scouters from around the world. Learn about what Scouting is like where they are, their culture and the kind of things they do there.JOTI and JOTA take place...[More]

Scouting is a game. Being a well trained leader allows you to guide the boys how to better play the game and have fun. Being a well trained leader you have the knowledge how to play the game safely and keep the boys coming back.Now taking the required training is now REQUIRED by BSA before you can become a leader and stay as a leader. Bottom line, get trained either online or in live training...[More]

There is actually a fair amount of gadgets I carry for pioneering. A few notes of caution, the stakes shown are normal tent stakes are too small for securing large pioneering projects. I do have larger rebar stakes, but most often tend to just secure bridges to local trees, rocks, etc. The orange stakes are actually sand stakes for a tent, when setting up in soft soil. Also the pulley, hooks, carabineers are not rated...[More]

The uniform is an important part of the Scouting experience and not in the military sense. It makes us stand out and show off the progress the boys have made during their Scouting experience. It also teaches the boys to take care of their uniform and how to wear it correctly, skills they will apply when they are an adult and have to take care of and wear appropriate cloths for different occasions.Since I have...[More]

Hi all, Fuzzy and Scout here. How have you been the past month? It seems already sooooo long ago that we had our summer holidays, and our summer camp :( In fact it summer seems a long time ago already, as it is turning colder already. But with the colder weather and it turning dark early in the night now it brings new challenges too, like night games with our torches and nature...[More]
