2024 Klondike Derby Write Up

The top ten things I learned on my final Klondike Derby as the Scoutmaster of Troop 640: <drumroll>

It takes more than two days to properly cook a raspberry pie.

An “Everything bagel” does not taste like octopus.

If you train really hard, you can improve your fire-starting skills by a factor of 38 in a year’s time. Or, y’know…if you’re just prepared.

BSA needs a tent rolling merit badge that teaches kids how to put a tent back into the bag it came in.

Late fees are non-negotiable.

When some tells you to meet them at the First Aid tent, be ready for anything.

Coke is better than Pepsi – sorry, it’s science.

People from Florida may not be genetically prepared to drive in Colorado snow.

Don’t let Scouts go camping when they’re  sick.

And the number one thing I learned…
These boys always find a way to have fun!!

Thanks for filling my cup with laughter and perseverance.
