God Bless Mini-vans
I'm sure thankful of the guys that evolved the station wagon into the mini-van. Some of the scout leaders in our troop are joking about calling us 'Troop Honda' since we have a caravan of Odysseys wherever we go.
But, I tell ya, they sure are a comfortable, flexible way to get scouts out and back. I put a trailer hitch on our Odyssey as soon as we got it and it can haul 1000 pounds just fine. I bought a trailer kit online, built a wooden fence for it and it works slick. We've also got rails on top so a soft-sided luggage carrier goes up there if it looks like a really full trip.

Of course, its not too macho tooling around in a mini-van, but what the heck - being dressed in a scout uniform I guess I already lost that edge. :-)

I'm off now to load up the adult tents, patrol box, and food. The weatherman says nice weather tomorrow - that's scarey.

Scout On!
