Actually, my 33 YO Eagle Scout son has never slept in our Eagle. When he camps with us, he brings his Eureka tent and sleeps in that. He says sleeping in the trailer isn't camping; to which I reply he's right, it isn't camping at all. It's RVing.

AHHH, He`s a still a hard core Scout. Thats OK. That may change with age though. It did for me! The older the bones get, the harder that cold damp ground gets! Of course I still get a good dose of tent camping but it makes me appreciate the Jayco even more!.

I was a Boy Scout from 1969 thru 1976, made it to Life and Brotherhood in the Order of the Arrow, but never came close to Eagle. I stayed on with the troop as an Assistant Scoutmaster and served as a very young Scoutmaster until I relocated for employment.

I stayed out of scouting for 25 years until my son became a scout and I signed on as an Assistant Scoutmaster. I have served as the Scoutmaster for the past 3 years.

Our troop is in the Blue Ridge Mountains Council (Virginia) which is blessed with a 17,000 acre scout reservation. Yes, 17 thousand acres!

We frequently backpack on the Applachian Trail which is practically in our back yard.

One of the really great things about our troop is the retention of older scouts with some stayng on as adult leaders after turning 18. Two weeks ago, I had four of my Assistant Scoutmasters who were in from college back at a regular meeting. They serve as excellent role models for all of the scouts and it is really great to have them around.

It is also nice to know that a new generation of leaders will carry on after old buzzards like me fade away!

I was a den mother for cub scouts weblos through boy scouts for my son. He went onto earn Eagle Scout.

I was a Girl Scout from Brownie to Senior Girl Scout. Loved the groups I was in. My daughter was a Girl Scout for 2 yrs and I was an adult helper for her group. That was a joke. We did the cookie sale and earned some badges but it is and was not like anything I ever was involved in. The first year was ended with a 2 day weekend at a Resort and water park. That was the mother's idea of camping. Not mine. Visons on Shelly Long's "Troop Beverly Hills" came to mind several times.

When asked, the one thing the girls wanted to do was to really camp. So the next year we did one camping trip which I organized. Myself and my daughter made the meal for the girls for the first night. I also made large batches coffee for the adults for the 2 mornings. I also organized games and activities for the girls along with some meal planning. There were parents in our troop that never cook so there were some pretty interesting meals when it was their turn for a meal. Some girls had never spent any time outdoors so they weren't sure what to do. Needless to say we didn't join this year and have not regretted it one bit.

I feel my husband and I have taught our daughter about camping and the outdoors and scouting in the true sense of the word and the oath they take.

I think our Troop has camped somewhat in your area. Several yrs back we camped at Smith Mountain Lake, climbed one of the Peaks of Otter (Sharptop or Flattop not sure which?). Another time we were at Camp Ottari, BSA camp somewhere near Blacksburg and did some mountain hiking. Two yrs ago we were at Camp Shenandoah, another BSA camp. -Lee

Camp Ottari and Camp Powhatan are the two base camps on the Blue Ridge Scout Reservation. My old troop, back in the day, went to Powhatan and my current troop goes to Ottari. If all goes well, I'll be back at Ottari for a week in July. We will be doing our next backpacking trip there as well.

The Peaks of Otter is sort of in my neck of the woods, in fact my family and I went there for dinner last Saturday. We have been thinking of taking the Jayco there for a weekend, but I don't believe the campground opens until May.

We were at Ottari for Fall 2006 I believe, just about had the place to ourself. We camped on a hill overlooking a small lake. This may look familiar to ya. Also visited a falls nearby.

Looks like Ottari on the backside of the lake. We'll be there next weekend to do some backpacking. It is time to do some Jaycoing.

I don't recognize the falls.

Yeah I think most of us migrate to a different kind of camping in time. But I do know a few Scouters in their 60`s still tent camping with Troops.

One of my former neighbours worked for Scouts Canada as a program organizer. What a cool job to have.

Wow, does that ever bring back memories! In Canada, our little towns had Cubs and Scouts, when I was a kid. I would imagine the cities had Girl Guides back then, too.

The one camping trip I remember involved riding in the back of two one-ton farm trucks out into the country, and setting up a couple of big tents at the edge of a bush. I can only remember bits and pieces, like the two trucks, my Dad's red and black Mercury and another fellow's green Chev or GMC, pulling away from our house in town. I can also still hear my buddy's Dad singing the Wabash Cannonball at the campfire.

As a Cub and Scout, I had the privilege of being mentored by some of the finest people on earth, many of whom were WWII vets. I was born at the end of 1947, so that gives you the time frame. Our Scout troop also used to walk out of our little town and cook supper in a bush during the winter, just on our own. I still like to do that, 50 years later.

That's a no-no in today's Scouting. Everyone must have a proper seat with a restraint.

Years ago, we used to ride Scouts in the backs of pickups for short distances at low speed, but not any more.

Amazing reading the "Guide to Safe Scouting" today and how many "unsafe" things we did back in the day....guess we have gotten just a little bit smarter.....
