Thanks for the report. Appears that the boys enjoyed their trip despite the rain. Hope they are hooked and will be back again.

They are. my daughter has wanted to go back since her 2012 trip. I think it's true for outdoors people...once the north woods gets in your blood, it doesn't leave. I always find myself dreaming of when I can go back. Maybe once I retire I will be able to make annual trips for a while...just need a tripping partner!

Thanks for the report - I enjoyed the pictures. I think it's a great idea to get the kids totally involved in all aspects of the trip.

I have loved being able to introduce young men and women to the adventure of the outdoors, both in weekend trips and more high adventure trips. I love hearing about good encounters with Scout groups...and absolutely cringe when I hear bad ones....they should always embody respect for the wilderness!

To date my long trips with them have been...
- A week backpacking the Great Smokey Mountains along the north shore of Fontana Lake, the 35 mile Lakeshore trail over 5 days.
- Two trips canoeing in Quetico, 6 days 70 miles in northeast Quetico; and 7 days 80 miles in northwest Quetico
- A 10 day hike at Philmont Scout Ranch in norther New Mexico mountains, 85+ including summitting Mt. Baldy,12,445'
- Looking forward to a week of sailing the keys and SCUBA diving every day next summer
