Arrow Rock 2008

Tent In Rain
Arrow Rock


Well, we just finished our September, 2008 campout (At Arrow Rock State Park).

We toured the town and museum on Saturday and had some good in-camp food.

The weather?  HA!

WOW DID IT RAIN.  This was the rainiest scout campout I have ever experienced.

The boys always learn a lot when the conditions are not optimal.  That being said; they learned a lot this weekend.

We got in the hike required for the Camping merit badge, so there will be some proud recipients at the next court of honor on 09/29/2008.

Camping Tip (Oatmeal)

Monday, September 1st, 2008


Did you know that you can make instant oatmeal without a bowl or a cup?

That’s right!  If you have the right brand of oatmeal, you can make it right in the package.

But, surprisingly, it’s not the expensive oatmeal that allows this.  It’s the INEXPENSIVE oatmeal (like Great Value from WalMart) that has the foil lining and will let you just open the package, add hot water, stir and enjoy.

When you’re finished, it can go into the trash.  Be sure to recycle that plastic spoon!
