This weekend was a Boy Scout camp out! I was able to go with Lon this weekend.
We met up at the church at 7:45 am to load up and get on the road by 8. It is a 3 hour drive upstate.
There were latrines near the camp, about 274 steps from my tent, according to my fit bit in the middle of the night. The running water was a pump near the latrines. It worked well.
This is a game called Viking Sword. I am not sure how it is played, but the boys like it.
The house was very small, but there were lots of out buildings, and land. Not much time was spent in the actual house
Lon and I learned about this at Middleton, it strips off bark and excess plant material from sugar cane and or sorghum. The big copper bowl over a fire pit was close to the machine.
It is a very big learning curve
We ate our sack lunch at the National Park visitors center.
The leadership scouts made it back to camp. They went on a 16 mile hike. All of these leadership scouts were either Eagle Scouts or going to be.
They learned that someone, anyone from their patrol needs to make sure the garbage bag is packed up and put in the trailer overnight. They had raccoon visitors There may or may not have been a bear who walked through the camp that night also, We just heard something big.
The raccoons were the ones that did the damage to the garbage bag. Yes, the boys had to pick it all up. The scouts left no trace.
It was a fun camp out. Lon and I both enjoyed ourselves.
