Is it a bad thing the Scout Shop knows me by name?Well, I took my boys with me today to the Scout Shop to get a few things. We do try to keep it to a few things per visit or at least we try. I guess the Scout Shop is to me like the Candy Store is to my sons, please don't tell my wife. Just joking about that.Today's trip to the Scout...[More]


The Scout Shop loves me and they really love me when I bring my boys. Is it a bad thing if they know me by name. I don't dare ask my wife, but she seems happy I go and have some time with the boys.We went to the Scout Shop today, me and the boys. We needed to get a couple of patches for the Blue and Gold Dinner tomorrow. I promised them if...[More]

I know sometimes it is way to easy for the parents to drop the boys off at the Den meeting and have them say "Don't worry we will be back in time" just to find they are a half an hour late. We as the Adult Leaders need to train and engage the parents so they stay and we don't get frustrated and turned into babysitters.First, we need to train them from their son's...[More]

Remember it is all about the boys and it maybe to easy to say Yes all the time. Sometimes we may get in over our heads and it is always good to have others who can take some of the load. It is way to easy to get burned out.I almost ran into the burn out wall, but caught or hopefully caught myself before I hit it. I had to remember that if I burn...[More]

Hello Everyone,Yes, it is ptsteve again!!! Ever feel like you have just dived into the deep end again. Don't worry you have, but we have your back. Take advantage of the training and also don't be shy about asking others to step up and help. You don't have to do it all by yourself. Don't do it by yourself, because that will just burn you out and the boys need you.All you have to do...[More]

Hi all,Fuzzy and I have a lot to tell you all. First of all we moved into a new cave, as Baloo has found a much nicer cave to live in.He asked us if we mind moving, of course we told him we don’t mind as long as there is enough salmon storage so we won’t go hungry. But it made us think of all people that have no roof above their heads to live...[More]

Recently I was talking to a Scouting friend from the UK. It seems at a recent Cub Camp the leaders needed some time to prepare the food. They sent the kids out in Patrols to come back with “the most interesting thing” which would win a prize. When all the groups came back one group had a live wild rabbit. The leader skinned and cooked the rabbit, which the kids had for dinner.The lesson... don't...[More]

As a Scout I backpacked the Grand Canyon twice. The first time we did it was my first long term, and my first serious backpacking trip. As a side note, the hike down only takes 4 to 5 hours, but the hike out takes 8 to 12 hours depending on your condition and the trail you choose. On our way down the Scout who happened to be my tent mate kept dropping his sleeping bag....[More]

After a day of trekking we picked out a camp spot. One of the Scouts started digging around in his pack and the next thing we knew he had produced a thumb skate board with ramp, a palm size dictionary, and electric screw driver, and I don't remember what else. When asked why he brought those items, his answer was simple “to keep my little brother out of them”. The next day we got up,...[More]
