The project detailed our plans to create two custom lightsaber hilts. On Saturday morning we returned from Noodle's soccer match. It was wonderful outside. At the same time we were getting in so was Shannon from her job. She was not feeling the greatest and said she wanted to lay down, the kinds and I headed outside to giver her some quiet.

Excitement is building in my household as final arrangements are being made for Marty to go to the 2013 Jamboree. One of the adventure areas he will have access to is "The Ropes". The Ropes has taken challenge courses to a whole new level for the jamboree. The Ropes is a network of zip lines, balance beams, cargo nets and other challenges — all suspended 25 feet above the ground. The Scouts will be harnessed up and clipped in for this obstacle-course-in-the-air.
Our destination was Dilleys Mill or Buckskin Scout Reservation. Dilleys Mill is located in the heart of Appalachia and sits on 2000 acres that borders the Greenbrier River, Seneca State Forest, and National Forrest land. The Allegheny Trail crosses the property along with other hiking trails, and a 17 acre lake, Lake Sam Hill, sits in the middle of camp.

I had stipulated that the position of Scoutmaster was to be neither that of a schoolmaster nor of a commander Officer, but rather that of an elder brother among his boys, not detached or above them individually, able to inspire their efforts and to suggest new diversions when his finger on their pulse told him the attraction of any present craze was wearing off. — Robert Baden-Powell, Lessons from the Varsity of Life, 1933
“In Scouting, a boy is encouraged to educate himself instead of being instructed.” - Sir Robert Baden-Powell
