When I was still a young Scout I went before the board for my First Class Rank. The board was made up of 3 adults and was set off in a side room of the building we were meeting in. Actually it was the back doorway, with the double doors, entry door, then another set of doors double wide. Anyway I went through the board, and answered there questions. Though I no longer can tell...[More]

A few years ago I was helping staff a event between two Troops. I had some time to relax so I laid down in my hammock for a while. My stomach grumbled so one of the older Scouts who was also on staff tossed me a nearly empty bag of chips. The next thing I knew I was sitting on the ground and we were all laughing our heads off. For what ever reason right...[More]

A few years ago when I was still handling the administrative tasks for the Troop I was working with I created what I call “The Mobile Office”. The pictures below who the tool box which I converted into a what some would call desk drawer.

Recently, I have been watching the Ken Burns National Park series on dvd. It is very interesting how the National Park Service (NPS) got started and why. It was not started by a president or even congress. It was started because a few concerned citizens say ok we have parks now what. Those people put in there own time and there own money to make it happen. If you think about it the NPS started...[More]

I remember one campout in particular, it was a nice enough weekend weather wise, but a Scout learned a hard lesson.The Scouts started unloading the cars and sitting up camp. After a while one of the older Scouts started hunting around camp trying to find his backpack. Turns out he told his brother to put it into the car before they left home. Well he didn't. Luckily their dad was on the outing with us...[More]

One year when I was on Summer Camp staff I was the main person teaching the Totin' chit at camp. I even got to the point where I was being asked by Scoutmasters to come to there camp and put on the course for their whole Troop.

This may sound weird on the surface but its actually really good... Take the normal ingredients for trail mix for example: nuts, cheerios, dried fruit, raisins, chex mix, etc. Mix together in a large bowl like normal, but also mix in butterscotch chips like you would use to make cookies. I usually don't add in any other sugary items to the mix besides the butterscotch -they are sweet enough. Sub divide it up into ziplock...[More]

When I was still a Scout we were on a backpacking trip. It was a windy, but clear day. The ground was all solid rock, it was just the way this location was... one big slab of rock. When it came time to set up camp we Scouts needed to stake down our tents, because of the wind, but the backpacking tent stakes would just bend when you tried to put them into the ground....[More]
