Scoutin' Around

I was at Boy Scout Camp with my two boys all last week. We were at Camp New Fork in North central Wyoming. We were part of over 80 boys and leaders there that week, less than any other week this summer. Due to the light enrollment, our boys could do just about anything they wanted without too much wait.

We had a very good week. It was not too hot most days, and even though we had a couple of storms, they only lasted a little while. We did have one major thunder bumper, with lightning and hail, but over all, not too bad.

I guess I'm getting older though. I woke up more often than normal, and did not sleep all that well. I think if I were to do it all summer, I could get back in the swing of things, but five days was either too short, or too long. :o) I know I hated getting out of my warm bag in the middle of the night to go to the Kaibo (bathroom).

I think the hardest part was watching people do things the hard way. Boy Scouts have a tendency to do things like that. Stop--Think--There must be a harder way. If you find it, it is the Scout Camp way, and it is the most nit-picky way there is.

In spite of that, I'd probably go again, but overall, I think I'd rather go to girl's camp.

Take care. Stick.

I could never go to Boy Scout Camp because my mother's intuition would have a nervous breakdown. I wouldn't be able to watch them eating with dirty hands, handling knives, jumping off rocks in to the water, playing with fire...etc....
