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)

Hi Ethan, thank you! I am available any morning after 9am. If you need any contact info, let me know, but I'm guessing it's under my profile. Looking forward to chatting with you soon - cheers!

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…
