    What Have You Learned About Yourself

    I'm addicted to the woods. When a week goes by and I'm not camping or hiking or just sitting around a campfire, I get antsy. I crave it. It's like a weird primal urge to get oudoors. Also, at summer camp I really enjoy a salad for lunch and dinner.

    Hello from Pennsylvania

    @greenreddew welcome to the forum and thank you for all you do for scouting!
  12. Do any Troops out there assign one or two specific ASMs to their Scout Patrols? For those that do, what is the ASM's function(s)? Signing off advancement for members of that Patrol, possibly? Any pros and cons of this practice? Thanks in advance for any insight.

    Rocket Launch As A Recruiting Night Draw

    @Scouter_Chris welcome to the forum! Though not active here on scouter dot com in over two years, maybe if we tag @SeattlePioneer we'll see a return visit.

    Sea Base Munson Island

    Interesting observations, thanks for sharing. Two crews from my son's Troop returned middle of last week. Assuming they were on the island with you at the same time. I would add: generously reapply the provided coral-safe sunscreen constantly as it washes off quickly. bug nets are a plus if there is no wind. Avon skin-so-soft helps immensely.

    Troop Trailer Stolen

    I suppose if you're the type of thief that favors the "Storage Wars" television show approach, you would prefer the nondescript trailer that could lead to unknown riches. šŸ˜•

    Troop Trailer Stolen

    We'd have to ask all the thieves that have stolen Scout trailers. There are plenty out them out there.
  19. @Liz how is the tent working out?

    Troop Trailer Stolen

    Thieves gonna thieve? Probably so. Our Scouts absolutely take pride in their trailer's appearance. I like @Jackdaws comment about marking the top of the trailer. Makes it easily identifiable when the local police helicopter flies overhead looking for stolen trailers. Our Troop's trailers are stored on the personal property of our ASMs. Never the CO's property.

    Troop Trailer Stolen

    Agreed. While the fancy paint jobs, decals, emblems, etc can be great advertisement for your Troop or Pack, you're also advertising your goods to thieves.

    Crossover schedule

    Our CO's Pack crosses over in late March / early April as well. From my my observation, the Webelos are eager to join a Troop and their leaders are ready to be done. Personally, I like that extra month to have those crucial consersations about summer camp.
  24. Great points, Barry. Definitely a challenge for the lone (and lonely!) Scout who would be at least 100 yards from any other Patrol or adult. Wilderness Survival MB comes to mind... I'd hesitate to say "never" as that word negates all opportunity for growth and learning.
