We met at Area 51 on Friday to pack the trailer. The trailer packing was cancelled Thursday because it snowed that day. We left about 7:30 to go to Buck’s Pocket. We arrived there about 10:00 then we unpacked, set up and went to bed because we were very tired.

On Saturday morning…

“We got there about 8:00 pm and someone talked for a few minutes and then we all split up. Alex, Dylan, Lane and I were there helping. All of the people went to different places in the community and we helped with whatever needed to be done. Dylan, Lane and I went to the high school.

When we got to the school there was trash all over the place and it just looked horrible. The three of us went around and picked up all the trash that we could find. Which turned out to be 3 garbage bags full. We did this while our parents did some yard work like pulling weeds. After that we got a big dump truck full of mulch and spread it around in the flower beds. Then we cleaned up the tree.

The tree went all the way down the hill on the other side of the parking lot. We went to cut it up with a chainsaw and we had to roll it over to cut it. When we went to roll it over a king snake came out from under it. We also saw a black widow when we tried to throw the logs in the woods. We had lots of fun and did about 4 hours of community service after we had ended at 12:00 pm.” – write up by Landon Mullins, Troop scribe

” 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
