Beavers at camp, brings a smile to my face.

What do you do when beavers start daming up the scout lake, we'll you find a beaver guy like me.

This guy was biting those sticks in half they they were candy. The beaver was all bit up from fighting.

Mr. Jerry with our beaver. He was pretty excited.

This was a very nice beaver, must have been around 40lbs.


This weekend was camporee, I didn't get to hang with the scouts much but I got to help in the kitchen.

Here's a quick pick of the 440 sausage patties I cooked.
We also cracked and scrambled 600 eggs.

This is my lunch station, only 240 burgers to grill. Mr Lee also had around 150 hotdogs I think.

The boys enjoying the food.

Closing campfire flag retirement for a recently passed scoutmaster.

Inside Camping and Axe Work

I don't know what it is, but I love to camp in old buildings. This dining hall is from th 40's, and I really like it. I wish I had the money to buy the rights to it from the council. Then it would get the attention it deserves!
The boys like camping in it because it's easy!!

Double burgers!!

Ahhhhh alls quiet.

The only problem is no place to hang my hammock, and sleeping on the ground is for rookies.

What do scout love to do, but no one lets them do??
CUT STUFF DOWN! When we found a lot that someone wanted cleared and we needed poles, we'll it going to be some fun work.

What do you do with a bunch of poles? Hmmmmm let's make something.
The start of our camp fence for camporee.

Then we end with a little church.............

Over all a really great wet weekend.

Cub Camp - spring break 2015

The great things about Cub Scouts is that they just want to have fun. And when you are camping 3 nights and it's going to rain the whole time, leave it to cubs to figure out how to have fun!

Riding in the Rain. CHECK

Hiking with your pack because it has Girl Scout cookies in it. CHECK

Making Mountain Man Breakfast before fishing. CHECK

CowBoy cooking our meals. CHECK

Staying out of the way, when we wake up to bad stuff. CHECK!

Overall we had a great camp with very few problems. I'm ready to go back already.

About Me

Sitting around the campfire last month, my friends and I were discussing how we wished we had a camping journal. After years of scouting we have seen some awesome things, and spent more nights in the woods than we count. This will be my simple story of my outdoor adventure with friends and my scouts.
