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.

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.

San Juan Islands

The site of our planned sea kayaking adventure

This summer we are planning a high adventure trip to the San Juan Islands of Washington.  This is one of the premier sea kayaking locations in the country with moderate weather, beautiful surroundings, protected waters and the chance to share the waters with some of the resident Orca pods in the area.

On January 21st, we had our first orginizational meeting. primarily to see who is going to be a part of the expedition.  For those who couldn’t make the meeting, I have placed the presentation on our youtube channel at  Go check it out. 

I also posted my favorite relevant videos at  Over the next week or two we will need to firm up our trek membership.  Contact me if you are considering joining this great adventure.

dsc_0103 It may be freezing outside but Summer Camp 2013 is right around the corner!  This year, we elected to stay in council and attend Slippery Falls Scout Ranch near Sulphur, OK.  This is a beautiful camp and gets better every year with new construction and new program areas.  The property is gorgeous, with a large lake, great rock formations, a beatiful forest and everyone’s favorite – the ‘Slippery Falls’ on Pennington Creek.

This camp is overflowing with activities, from their Cowboy Campfire to the famous blob at the lakeshore.  They also offer an incredible number of merit badges.  This include some that we’ve never seen such as kayaking, welding, and fly fishing.  They also offer up to six merit badges per camper.

Summer Camp should be great fun again this year.  Mark your calendar for June 23 – 29.  Sign ups will begin soon.  For more details, check out the leaders guide.
