GSM Startup Guide

Believe it or not, I started this GSM Startup Guide back in April 2015. It has grown to 11 pages and fear it will never really be done, but I think it does a good job of representing a bunch of things Travis Wittwer and I simply did not know when we founded the 55th Cascadia... until then Chief Commissioner David Atchley flew out for our first BTC back in fall 2013. It also contains other topics/challenges that have come up for us…See More

Thanks for the greeting, Ethan! Evan (my husband) and I are so excited about BPSA. We have 3 daughters and have been involved in a Colfax GS troop for 3 years, but we  are not happy with the corporate red tape, cookie sales, prejudices, and difficulty for my husband being involved in things! The same sad tale from many who make that exodus, I'm sure. Anyway, our intent is to definitely start a BPSA group  in this area. We already have some friends interested. I haven't processed the charter yet because we haven't  decided on a name! We do have enough to start out. We are seriously considering the Oregon BTC this fall as well. Evan is from Seattle originally, so any chance we have to get up north is welcomed by us all. I'll keep you posted on that. I've ordered some books already, and will start on the GSM Start-up Guide you sent me as well. We are so excited to be scouting WITH the kids! We watched Moonrise Kingdom again as another way to inspire ourselves. ;o)

TRAIL MAGIC

Posted on October 15, 2013 at 6:00pm 1 Comment

Trail magic: It’s what happens when kind-hearted people extend unsolicited acts of generosity to bedraggled long-distance hikers.



The 55th has begun a tradition of finding a campsite along our nearest long trail (which for us is the Pacific Crest Trail) and having our scouts (who become "trail angels" in long-distance hiking parlance) come up with and execute their idea for a service to hikers. 



Our first year saw scouts…
