Hopefully we have made further progress in eliminating confusion about which Patrol’s equipment is left sitting on the table after cleanup.  The trailer is also looking more organized and we have a good idea what gear we need to replace (that is missing).

Thanks to Ben, Aaron, Lee, Eric, Zane, and Vincent for helping get the trailer in shape today!

We had a reasonably uneventful trip today.  We are all here, met up with Nathan S. and everyone is settling into their tents tonight.  they started something new this year and checked us in today so that tomorrow all we have to do is our swim check!  What a deal.

I’ll be heading over to Claytor Lake tomorrow about 12:00 with the 5 boys who will be there for the week.  Mr. Bird is taking over here so they area all in very capable hands.

We had one minor issue today when we all tried to avoid a large piece of tire tread in the road.  My dad didn’t see it in time and hit it head on which resulted in a large plastic cover being torn loose from the bottom of the car.   Fortunately no major damage or accidents so thank God for that!

I’ll try to update as much as I can this week.  I won’t have much communication with Camp Powhatan, but will hopefully get a few pictures in my email to post.

Have a great week.  We will for sure!

Scouting in a NutshellHere, then, is Scouting in a nutshell: A game for boys under the leadership of boys with the wise guidance and counsel of a grown-up who has still the enthusiasm of youth in him. A purposeful game, but a game just the same, a game that develops character by practice, that trains for citizenship—through experience in the out-of-doors.
