Memorial Day 2015

What a day to remember. The rain stopped just long enough for for us to honor our veterans.

The troop placed flags along side the road of the ceremony.

A cool rebar driver, being used. Much faster than the hammer, no smashed fingers to worry about I suppose. ;)

The drive and walk up. Scouts greated and shook hands of the people showing up.

Overall it was very nice. 4 or 5 service hours, but I hope the scouts got a lot more out of it than that.
It's ashame we are loosing that great age of WW2 veterans, before these boys can hear their stories.

Memorial Day 2015 was an honor to be a part of.

2015 Spring Ordeal

Spring ordeal was a lot of fun this year. I had the chance to work with new people and old friends. While i also had the chance to watch some of my scouts particapate in ordeal.

The ride up started kinda ruff. Every weekend trip has included rain it seems, this one was no different.

This was home for the weekend, we cooked some pretty good meals for 200 people.

A little fun picking on people getting wet.

You can make new building at camp, and they are nice, but they will never replace the old buildings memories!

The OA

Our brotherhood members. Very proud of these guys.

We had a lot of rain, looks pretty here though.

We finished the trip at the new basspro in Memphis. The boys were really excited.
This is one group, we let them split up and explore.

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.
