Go Ape Zip Line Adventure

Last weekend (Sept 29, 2018) our Boy Scout Troop took our annual September trip to Lums Pond State Park in Delaware.  One of our favorite activities is the Go Ape Zip Line.  Several of our new scouts went on the Junior adventure while the others took the Treetop Adventure.

I highly recommend the Go Ape course at Lums Pond.  the staff are friendly, and make sure you are safe before you get on the course.  Maybe my next visit to Pittsburgh, I’ll check out the course in Allison Park.

I hope you enjoy the video!

Whitewater Rafting in the Royal Gorge

Back in mid-July through August 1st, 2018, Troop 660 planned to visit Philmont Scout Ranch for our High Adventure.  Due to the forest fires, we had to change up our plans and toured about 8 different National Parks, horse back riding in the dessert and some whitewater rafting in the Royal Gorge on the Arkansas River in Co. It was a 10 mile half-day trip. We used three GoPro (two Hero 4 Silver from Echo Canyon and my Hero 5 Session). By far one of the best adventures I went on with out Troop!

I hope you enjoy the video!

Patches for my packs

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:

Colorado Springs for a tour of the Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak, and white water rafting.  Then it is off to the White River National Forest to complete a four day 25 mile backpack trip.

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.

We will complete the trip with a visit to Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon, and the Capitol Reef National Park for two days.  Back to Denver and fly back home.

I still need to check with the airline if I can bring my DJI Phantom 3 Pro.  I plan to bring my GoPros with plenty of empty 32GB scares and a Jackery Giant battery charger.

Light Painting

I picked up a copy of a book called; “GoPro: How To Use The GoPro Hero 4 Silver” by Jordan Hetrick. Under the section titled Night Photo, Jordan talked about Light Painting. So I stopped at a store and purchased glow sticks and a glow bounce ball and had my son come out with me to try it out. We had fun and it worked great!
