  4. Here is a suggestion on a place to stop. Would a side trip to the Gettysburg Pa battlefield work? You might be able to camp nearby. This maybe too far out of your way but other Cival War sites could be on your route. Also check if you will pass near any BSA camps. Spend a day just exploring that area.

  7. Here is a follow up news story I just found. This is adding more to the story, but there still seems to be some pieces missing. http://www.palisadespost.com/content/index.cfm?Story_ID=2190 Family of Autistic Scout Sues Troop 223, Council September 07, 2006 Max Taves , Staff Writer At the end of August 2005, 12-year-old Casey Reilly didn't go with Palisades Boy Scout Troop 223 to Emerald Bay for a weeklong, much-anticipated funfest in Catalina.

  9. My son who is in college now, has Asbergers Syndrome. This is a type of high function Autism. During his time in scouting I was very involved,(ASM for the troop). He was APL PL ASPL Den Chief, SPL and Brotherhood OA. He aged out as a Life Scout, he decided he did not want to complete Eagle. Scouting was good for him and he was good for the troop. After a few campouts the other adults understood the issues and I did not have to be at every event. When my son first was diagnosed we were told to be forceful when his needs were not being met. I think that is what is happening here but
  10. A friend E-mailed this, it makes a great point. Just up the road from my home is a field, with two horses in it. From a distance, each looks like every other horse.

Looking around for the source of the sound, you will see that it comes from the smaller
