  • BACK TO THE THREAD. Tribalhiker nice find, The canal is a nice bike ride and Harpers Ferry is great for coffee and a sandwich! Every so often I go there to revisit the history. Here is the guy who put Harper's Ferry on the map, 872px-John_Brown_Painting_at_Harpers_Ferry.jpg Another gun toting, bible thumping, bitter clinger who personally wanted to emancipate the slaves.

    Its not hard find a water source near sunset, once obtained walk off trail. Look for trees with hiking poles extended and you can make it a hammock spot. Best informative video for hammock youtu.be/ypEM3Nwcbs8?t=30

    Max.... when it comes to a great chef, I cannot wrap my head around "unless, of course, they're spectacular." a common expression from Chef Walter Staib who does 200+ year old cooking. walterstaib.jpg

    Everyone has a 20 + year run... time to decide.

  • Tonight was interesting Ashley is seven years old and starting to think for herself. Clearly there are challenges in our family lives, nothing is perfect. I expressed after many folks left with their kids, it was time to leave. Oh the damn drama, really she ran across a soccer field to avoid me and then lied about it. Well we had a "discussion" about poor choices. It all worked out, but made me think about what if that happened on the trail. I still think she is ok and I am not worried, just sha…

  • Ok I don't know how to explain the details... but the leader forgot an integral part of peeing in the woods. The hike is next week and the part that was left out was how to lean against a tree. You squat, pull up the leggings and drop the drawers. Most find a squat log right? But if your back is supported by a living tree all is good. Please do not read between the lines on this one - water is involved.

    One has to wonder how bad it is out there with all the scams. The breaches at corporations, the Home Depot comes to mind and the rest. My wife and I pulled Exsperion this year and found a loan from some obscure corporation in Utah that I never heard of from three years ago, and the loan was connected to some halfway house in Texas. I don't think it went through, but they won't close it or remove it. They won't admit to anything! So now we are filing a police report and the officer said... "yup I…

    My ability to post in this thread clearly is totally diminished and unsustainable. There are so many factors involved. My side effects are headache, pregnant, etc.

    Quote from max.patch: “i haven't been in dicks for probably 5 years. their backpacking stuff -- except for marmot rain gear -- is more car camping quality rather than backpacking. i've bought a fair amount of running shoes there and some weight lifting stuff. they have a large hunting department -- but i'm not a hunter so no clue as to it's quality. and golf sucks so i bypass that part of the store too. i'm not worried about rei although i have no clue as to their sales history. their backpackin…

  • Wow you folks would love seeing the current coordinator test, here is a small sample... How can girls and adults prevent tick bites? What is the protocol if someone touches a bat with bare hands? What do you do if you happen upon a stray dog at camp? What does the poison ivy plant look like?

  • I have to admit - I like scary, but not creepy like above video. We had great skits when I was in Scouting... So I find the video a bit odd.

  • Well I honestly do not know how to explain this, as a Grandfather, as a Parent, or as a Sibling. I have grown up with brothers, men, and almost never around women except my mom and my wife. So tonight I have been watching training videos and reading a lot of information about participating with Girl Scouts, a possible learning curve for me. Yes just a little apprehensive. At 56 my son cannot participate and the mother of our granddaughter lives in another state, so Ashley wants to be part of the…
