Thunderbase 2018- May 4-6, 2018

May 4-6 was spent at the Council Camporee of Thunderbase.  Loads of activities for everyone to do and just a few (thousand) of our Scout friends to share the experience with.  A little damp Saturday afternoon, but we still had a good time!

April 21-22, 2018- Wildcat Hollow Backpack

April 21-22, we headed down to Wildcat Hollow for a backpack to get outside and break in the new guys!  Younger Scouts did about 6 miles total, while the older Scouts headed out on a planned 11 mile day one.  Due to an 'old-guy' injury, the long hike had to be aborted at mile 5, but we still managed to meet up at the same campsite as originally planned.  Great weather and a great time!

Bluespring Caverns

March 16-17, 2018  We drove the 4.5 hours to Bluespring Caverns (South of Indianapolis).  Went on a boat ride on the longest navigable underground river in the US and did a little wild caving as well as learned about caving.  Even got to spend the night in the cave!

2018 Iron Chef cookoff

January 26-28, 2018 we headed to Sequoia Lodge at Camp Falling Rock for the annual Iron Chef Cookoff.  After checking out Dawes Arboretum with a chilly hike Saturday morning, we started the cookoff.  Everyone did a great job and the judges had a tough decision..............This year's winner, and new holder of the 'We ate no weenies' trophy, was the Albino Rhino Patrol.  Way to go guys!
