The crew of older boys scheduled to do a high adventure trip to Utah in a few weeks was busy training today.  The seven of us went to Mount Scott for a day honing our rappelling and rock climbing skills. Thanks to Mr. Gilliam and his team to run this event for us.  We had two 80-foot rappel lines and a couple of rock climbing runs set up. After much worry this week about the weather, it was perfect today – sunny warm and no wind.  Everyone did great with the rappels. This will come in handy when we are canyoneering in Utah.

Fourteen of our new scouts had a great weekend campout. Here they are first erecting a flagpole and then practicing their flag ceremony. We discovered that one of the littlest scouts has the biggest command voice. Lots of fun, learning and bonding for the group.

Scouts from Troop 386 worked together to prepare a VERY large and VERY distressed US Flag for a planned retirement on Monday, October 14, 2013 at Peace Lutheran Church in Edmond, OK. Each strip of the flag is over a foot wide with total dimensions of approximately 15 by 25. The folded triangle is approximately 4 ft long on each side. We’ll do the flag retirement as part of a special meeting planned for visiting Webelos Scouts and parents.

Climbing in the Wichitas

p1040352 Last Saturday, we went down to the Wichita mountains to do some rock climbing.  It was a glorious day – far better than the weatherman predicted.  Sunny and mid 80s with no wind; there aren’t many days like that in Oklahoma!  Thanks to Larry Gilliam and his helpers Thomas, Steve and Allison the event was safe and fun for everyone.




p1040362 Everyone was able to climb until tired.  We even had Scott Davey drive up from college to join in the fun.  He was able to climb “10 and 4” (named after the position you need to put your legs to successfully climb the route) and even was the first to climb one of the routes there.  Due to this accomplishment, he had the honor of naming the route.  The official name is now “Charlie Horse”  after the pain he felt from contorting his leg in an unnatural position to complete the route.

Matt’s highlight was finally getting to climb “10 and 4”. He clearly has a little bit of monkey in him.  Brenner was excited to go climbing for the first time ever.  Blake liked when he climbed up “Marlboro Man” and looked over to see his dad at the top of the “West Texas” route.

We finished up the day by eating at Meer’s.  It was a popular place but well worth the wait.  Great cobbler and homemade ice cream.  I can’t wait until our next climbing trip to the Wichitas.
