It is that time of years the boys in Cub Scouts are Graduating to the next rank. The Webelos 2 have bridged over and now it is time for the others to advance. I consider them all "my boys" and they have grown up so much since they have been Tigers. Now they have graduated to Bears and it brought a tear to my eye when they were all up on the stage with Akela...[More]

All boys are Scouts in the Den/Pack/Troop meetings. Doesn't matter if they are Special Needs or "Normal", they are all boys having fun and learning how to be better. Special Needs boys are just like any other boys and all they want is to be accepted. That hour they are in the Den/Pack/Troop meeting they are a Cub Scout or Boy Scout having fun and learning with their peers. If you have the honor of...[More]

On one pustular campout we had invited some second year Webelos to join us. This campout was at a small lake about 90 minutes from our city. I remember we had a big court of honor at the end of this campout so maybe it was also when we invested the Webelos into the Troop. Anyway it doesn't really matter....It was growing later in the day, the sun was setting, it was getting dark and...[More]

Eldorado canyon was the location of a big mine, now it is a good place to get to the river, and the home of a very very very small town. This post is just some pictures from this trip.(you can right click on the photo and select view image for...[More]

This is another tale from my trip as a Scout to Philmont. For two or maybe it was three days we had two pack mule that joined us on our trail journey. A fair amount of that time I held on the rope of one of the muels. One of the things that amazed me the most is how that mule would wait till we got to a stream, and it was every stream to...[More]

I found what follows on this website Bottle—One Million Years Okay, we don’t really know whether a glass bottle takes a million years, two million years, or a million years and one day to degrade since no one has been monitoring them for that long. But suffice it to say, when a glass bottle isn’t recycled, it sticks around for a really, really long time. Glass is primarily of composed of silica—the same material...[More]

This story actually occurred to me as a Scout... No I was not bitten by a snake but I came close twice. As a teenager hiking I tended to just hike, pay attention to the scenery, chat with the other Scouts, etc but did not really keep an eye on the trail itself. The first time I was walking down the trail at the bottom of the Grand Canyon when one of the leaders behind...[More]

I come to the edge of a beautiful valley. To the left I see a small village. Looking out of the windows, I see people waving there hands beckoning me to come visit them and hear what they have to say. Turning my head to the right I see a few house here and there and a few more people beckoning me to come for a visit. On the other side of the town is...[More]
