I read a newspaper article about how you built a reef for your Eagle Project. Can you tell us how and why you came up with making a reef? What did you learn from doing the project? How many Scouts did you have helping you?I chose to build an artificial reef system because as an avid S.C.U.B.A. Diver of eight years, i have seen firsthand how our world's reefs are declining and that they need...[More]

This text comes as a result of a post on a Scouting Mailing List. This information (and lot more comes) from the following site http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/The-Boy-Scouts-of-America-Company-History.htm Although many ideas were incorporated into the Boy Scouts of America, a chance encounter on a foggy London night in 1909 connected all the threads. Chicago publisher William D. Boyce was on his way to a safari in Africa. On a layover in London, he became lost and was...[More]

A boy scout at heart, always and forever. The program taught him social and character development. The young boy was timid and did not know what it would be like. He learned to be a part of a team and value the importance of his teachings. The teachings were of citizenship, outdoors, education, survival, fitness, and leadership. The young scout learned the laws and oaths of the organization and vowed to live by those words....[More]

There are several techniques to find out how heavy your backpack is before a trek. The most common method is to stand on a scale with and without the pack on. The differences between the two numbers is the weight of the pack.There is another way. For years my dad keep looking in stores at fishing scales. The problem was none of them handled more then like 40 pounds. Eventually when in San Diego I...[More]

First, let me get the disclaimer out of the way the best way for the Scouts to pass any knife is to lay it down and let the other person pick it up. However, if it can't be laid down they need to know how to pass a non-folding blade properly. Of course if the knife can fold, then it is always past when folded.As you can see in the first picture, you hold the...[More]

First let me get this straight, this is not one of those flimsy tin foil emergency blankets. What is it? An all weather space blanket is half tarp and half emergency blanket. On one side it is a tarp that comes in an array of colors. On the other side is a shinny foil – kind of like a durable emergency blanket. Just like the emergency blankets these provide you 90% of your body...[More]

Looking at the video I bet this thing weights a ton, but I love all the fold out table space. The leg systems seems reasonable. And the wheels on bottom to make it easier to move is genius. Ok maybe I am easily impressed......[More]
