So when it came time to create a way to store gear in the garage, well this experience played a roll.As you can see in this photo, the shelving unit is made up planks of wood, and bricks. All you do is stand up a few bricks on the floor, lay a board across the...[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.

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]
