Scoutmaster update - May 20, 2013

posted May 20, 2013, 11:26 PM by Brent Browning
Another active weekend for Troop 33: Makers Faire, service, and backpacking! 

Winn Hartford, our Chaplain’s Aide, organized and led a group of 6 Scouts and 2 Webelos to assist LAUMC with cleanup after their annual rummage sale. I have heard that the church was very appreciative of our efforts. Great job Winn! 

We had two separate groups backpacking through the awesome Big Sur and Ventana Wilderness this weekend: 

The 10 Scouts and 4 Adults in the intermediate group conquered overgrown trails crossing over/under no less than 73 fallen trees on their ~10 mile round-trip trek making extensive use of their map and GPS to successfully find their campsite and a very cool swimming hole. 

The 8 Scouts and 5 Adults in the advanced group learned how to cross a river (multiple times) and climbed 5,761’ total in just two days on their 20 mile round-trip route. We camped right along the Big Sur river at Sykes camp, heaven on earth.
