BSA Training
Posted in General
Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:28 am)

Well last weekend I completed my BSA Leadership training course, and I'm glad it's over. It's a good course and I learned a lot of good things, but it was as long and as tiring as it was informative. Camp Easton is a nice place, although it's a bit too close to the highway for my taste. They had tons of canoes and boats, and their own private inlet where you can swim.

We camped on the ground (I was hoping for a chance to sleep in the cabins) and it was cold enough in the morning that you could see your breath until almost 10:30am. We did a lot of review on scouting skills, knots, fires (a cotton ball covered in vaseline is a great firestarter!), lashings, etc.
