Going to Camp

I'll be away for the next 10 days.

I'll be at scout camp with my son, between 15 and 30 other leaders (at various times) and close to 70 boys. We'll be staying at a wide spot in the Osage River (more commonly referred to as Truman Lake) .

If you draw a triangle from Iconium to Osceola to Clinton MO and back to Iconium, the H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation is roughly at the southeast vertex.

If you click on the image you might be able to read the flag I planted at the camp.

Before H. Roe Bartle became mayor of Kansas City, he was a long-time Boy Scout executive starting in the 1920s in Wyoming, transferring to St. Joseph and finally serving in Kansas City. The H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation hosts three camps on its 4200 acres and serves 6,600 boys and 3000 leaders yearly.

It lacks an internet connection, so I doubt very seriously I will be posting anything over the next week and a half, but I will be back Saturday July 9th. It'll be rough, but I have gone similar periods without internet. It's the lack of air conditioning that I'm more concerned about....
