Boy Scout Troops

John and Andy spent the day visiting three Boy Scout troops.  They began the day with Troop 6.  Things didn’t go quite as expected.  No one was really prepared for a five-mile hike in the mud.  John was one of the first to fall.

He recovered, but it took a while as he was mad at himself for falling.  After lunch and a stop at home to change clothes and clean up a bit, John and Andy headed off to the afternoon with Troop 706.  They actually had a trebuchet and the boys got to watch pumpkin chunking!  John thought this was particularly cool.

They spent the evening with Troop 4 eating great food.  John was impressed with the dump cake.  John has a big decision to make and I can only hope that today will help him start down that path!
