” We met at 6:00 pm at Area 51 and packed the trailer. We left about 6:45 and drove all the way there without stopping. About 9:00 we got there and unloaded the trailer of all the troop and personal gear. This weekend was the first Campout to use the new easy-up tents for dining flies. We stopped when everything was done, lights out was at 10:00 pm so we went to bed about that time.

Saturday morning we woke up and started cooking breakfast about 6:00. For breakfast we had scrambled eggs and sausage. After that we got done cleaning up about 8:45, and then we worked on advancements and fished. Later, we went bush whacking and the trail was so overgrown we decided to turn back once we were a little less than halfway to the top. We went to the beach and picnic area to eat lunch And practice our skits for the campfire. About 3:00 pm we played capture the flag. The game was awesome and the Firebirds won. We cooked dinner and got cleaned up about 7:00. From 7:00-8:00 we had an hour of free time to just fish or chill out. The campfire was at 8:30 and we just did some skits. Each patrol did three skits. The troop just hung out together and talked until about 10:00. About 10:15, Mr. Rodney, Gage and I went deer hunting with Sam’s awesome heat seeking goggles that he brought. We came back and went to bed around 11:00.

Sunday morning when we woke up at 6:45 we had cereal and got done cleaning up about 7:45, the Firebirds had cinnamon rolls and sausage. We got done packing and had our Scouts Own Service about 9:00, then left about 10:00. We got back to Area 51 about 12 and unloaded. Everyone had a great time and thought it was a great Campout.” – write up by Landon Mullins, Troop Scribe

Scouts Skating On Thin Ice

Scouts Skating On Thin Ice

The Guntersville Lake State Park camp out was incredible. In my five years of Scouting I have never heard so many boys say so many times how much they enjoyed this camp out and how it was the best camp out ever. They found several Geocaches, everyone saw an eagle, there was ice skating, hiking, icicle bowling, running with the deer, vine swinging, rock hopping, crossing streams via a downed tree, boulder tossing, mud bogging, fishing and listening to the coyotes howl. There was something for everyone.
