MSPP #114: A Yearly Review 1985

It has been over 25 years since 1985 came to an end. It was a busy year for the Boy Scouts of Melrose Troop 68. They went to winter camp at Parker Scout Reservation, attended the council’s Ripley Rendezvous at Camp Ripley, held a spring pancake and sausage breakfast fundraiser, went to camp Watchamagumee in the early spring, hopped onto their bicycles for a weekend outing in June, attended summer camp at Tomahawk Scout Camp in Wisconsin, visited the Minnesota Renaissance Festival in September, took part in a city’s emergency drill in October, and even found time to hold a few courts of honor. Like I said, it was a busy but very fun year. Here is a slideshow featuring pictures from those events.

True North – Gear Show 1

God Bless my mom, she got me some new gear for my pack, a Brunton Lucy Lantern. It’s lightweight and runs on the fuel canisters that I am already carrying in my pack. I have never used a gas lantern, so this was my first shot…

I haven’t done gear reviews or demos before, so please forgive the roughness of the video…

Here are some links…
