Friday night we all met at Arby’s for a good meal then we headed down to Auburn. We arrived at Auburn about 9:30 and unpacked and set up camp in the Troop 218 hut. After getting ready for bed we decided that we were not very tired and had some game time.

Saturday morning we packed up to leave, and then headed for a well balanced meal at McDonald’s while it was raining cats and dogs.  Then we headed to Auburn University for the Merit Badge University.  While at MBU we went through our different merit badge classes and had some great Hamburgers and Hot Dogs and all the fixins for lunch.  After lunch we finished up with our classes and then met at the parking garage to head off to Camp Tranquility at Oak Mountain State Park. We arrived at Camp Tranquility at 8:45, when we got to the cabins we set up camp and then the new recruits worked on the Tenderfoot rank advancements.

Sunday morning we awoke and headed for the wonderful food of McDonalds again, we then headed back to camp and work on some more rank advancements and our Firemen Chit.  After all of that fun we decided to go on a hike through the rough terrain of Oak Mountain.  After getting back from the hike and after all of the fun that we had we decided t have a PLC meeting and then packed up and headed for home to see our parents who we missed so much.

We would like to thank Mr. Mitchel, Mr. Greg, and Mr. Rodney for the fun times we had and for allowing us to aggravate them for the whole weekend.  We had a great time.
