Day 65: Fixin' and Cleanin'
100 days of scouting Day 65: A scout and his dad came over after school to fix a tent pole in his patrol's tent. Only took about 10 minutes and now he can help teach someone else the next time it's needed. He learned a figure eight stopper knot.

Three scouts stopped by after that to clean two dutch ovens that their patrols had neglected after their last use. Rust happens fast in a bare, wet, closed dutch oven. Fortunately, steel wool and elbow grease saved the day. A quick spray of vegetable oil and they're looking ready to go. I told them they might consider making a few batches of doughnuts to break the D.O.s in again. :-)

Sat through the district committee meeting tonight. same old stuff.

This weekend will be the first campout for the new patrol so there's a flurry of parent question emails fluttering around. The troop guide is taking care of everything so far and I'm impressed. Latest weather says rain and possibly snow. Oh joy!
