Brownsville Cubscout Campout

Our cubscouts have an annual family campout in the Brownsville Pioneer Park. It is a rather informal campground near the Calapoolia River with port-a-potties and no water.

Despite the limited facilities, it was a fun event. Reed Lacy set up a zip line, which was a hit. We did skits around the fire. I told the Scoop Shuvel story. After dark, I set up my telescope and talked astronomy until there was no one left. We saw Saturn and it's moon Titan, as well as Mars and the Moon.

Breakfast was the eggs in a bag affair, which turned out well. Annie and I and one other family stayed to visit the small farmer's market and visit the Linn County Historical Museum.

Fun Times! It looks like there were almost as many girls as boys. Sounds like you really contribute. I like how you don't hang back.

Ken, One of the great things about scouting events is the other adults like Roy and Reed. Dad
