Camping with Brady

Randy took Brady camping at Huntsville State Park to work on some remaining requirements for his First Class rank in Scouts.  Brady did amazing (as usual)!  He demonstrated his mastery of knots and lashings, orienteering, first aid, fire building, and outdoor cooking.  And he had lots of fun doing it.

This is definitely the BEST campsite at Huntsville SP.

Measuring the height of a tree.

Working on some orienteering and map skills.

Supplies for knots and lashings. 

Diagonal lashing.

Two square lashings.

Tripod lashing.

Working on first aid.

So darn cute!

Such a good fire builder!

Enjoying an evening by the campfire.

And a visit by a very brave raccoon (he/she got much closer than this and lingered for a while).

Lightweight stove cooking.

They said this instant breakfast wasn't so bad.

Enjoying breakfast before packing up and heading home.
