So I've mentioned reading this book a few times lately in various posts. Well, I finally finished it today over lunch.
I highly suggest it. If you are here, you are interested in scouting and scouting stories so you will enjoy this book.
The short of it is, this guy was a scout in the 1940's. Became a SM as a young adult and led a few units through a very outdoor adventure oriented program through something like 40 years. It's divided up into short stories, which makes it an easy read.... with a good amount of chuckles every few pages. Some of it is a bit dated, in that there were things done that I cannot even imagine being considered today, but in that you also get a taste of what scouting used to be in a way, too... and he had some great co-ed stories too, with some coed adventures with a GS troop, and then later with an explorer post
Seems like they did a lot of backwoods type backpacking and canoe trips, some winter adventures too. As a scouter in a tailgate/ troop trailer plop camping troop....It really struck me how great folks out west must have it, with lots of really great options of places to go.
