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!

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!
