Yesterday I received a couple of really cool patches from Death Wish Coffee Company (my new favorite). Today I stopped at the local Scout Shop in Wilmington to pick up a few items including Badge Magic. Now those cool patches look awesome on my backpack and day pack.
Our Scouts from BSA Troop 660 picked a new adventure for us, and they are looking forward to it. We are heading to:
We are then camping at Canyonlands to exploring Arches National Park, Moab, and Canyonland. We’ll follow up with a horseback ride in Monument Valley. I plan to get up early to get a photo or time-lapse of the sunrise. Then it’s three days at the Grand Canyon for some serious day hikes.
So my Apple Watch sent me a notification.
All I need to do is increase my daily energy burn by 41%. Sure… no problem. Good think I am hiking this weekend at White Clay Creek State Park with our Boy Scout Troop. We are practicing “leave no trace camping” and the “BEAR-muda triangle”. Our hike will cover 15 miles in two days.
Looking forward to our summer trip to Philmont!
First off Star Wars Episode VII, The Force Awakens, was the best Star Wars movie…ever! All I can say is ,”WOW!!” I saw the movie Friday night at 10:15PM at Penn Center IMAX at the Waterfront in Wilmington, DE. We arrived about 45 minutes early and wait in line. We ended up in the second row from the screen. Normally I cant stand to be that close, but it didn’t matter this time. Like many, I will see it again in the theater.
On Saturday, I was on a camping trip at the Henson Scout Reservation with Boy Scout Troop 660. The Scouts shot black powder and .22 rifles. In the afternoon, the first year scouts worked on orienteering while older scouts worked on camp gadgets for their First Class rank. The meals were fantastic, and we enjoyed good stories by the fire. I was up till almost midnight putting out our camp fire and enjoying the cold night looking up at the stars (27 degrees F).
It was perfect “guys” weekend, and I’m looking forward to the next.
