  1. OK, I need y'alls help; I had a ruptured disc in my L5 back in July that required surgery. The pain was so bad, my entire right leg went numb. But, here I am, on my last week of disability, and I find myself planning a camping trip for a group of Scouts, to Pisgah National Forest. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what kind of sleeping pad I should be looking at? I have an air mattress that my two boys use, but even on my good days, that thing is a beast to sleep on. I need something firm, but I don't want to feel the gravel from the campsite digging into my back. I was th
  2. Howdy & good Sunday morn to all you scouts! Can I pick at your brains for a few minutes?? I was wondering how many of you belong to Troops or Packs that participate in Veterans Day parades, and what do you do to make them special? Our council has great participation for our local parade, but I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas to make it all the more exciting for the boys.
  3. I have a bunch of new scouts this year, and I made a "cheat sheet" up for the parents. I had them work on the material at bedtime. So along with their prayers, they'd do, say the Cub scout motto, etc. 6 of my 7 new guys had earned their Bobcat badge in less than 3 weeks. Works like a charm!
  4. Yeah, that clinched it for me when we went to join my oldest up for scouts! If done correctly, it is a very powerful tool!
  5. You know, I've only been in Cub scout leadership for a year, but it seems to me that your family should come before Scouts.

  6. Thanks for the welcome guys!! Apache Bob, By any chance , are you Pack 232? wahooker, You're up in Cabbarus county? scoutldr, Maybe we are related! My Mom grew up in Bala Cynwyd, and my dad in Upper Darby. I grew up here, but have less of an accent than most folk because of my yankee parents! LOL
  7. Hi y'all! My name is Steve,and I am a wolf Den Leader for Pack 49 in Newell, North Carolina. http://www.cubpack49.org/ The Pack still claims Newell as our hometown, despite the fact that Charlotte swallowed up the town a long time ago. Anyway, I became a scout leader last year, when my oldest son wanted to join cub scouts, and I'm not to sure who gets more out of it, me or him! We have a fairly active pack, we do a lot of camping trips and hikes, weed warriors,scouting for food, etc.I also am helping my Council to get packs and troops in our area to participate in our local Veterans day
