Tesomas Day 3

Another beautiful day at Tesomas, the Smiley Doppler is currently calling for rain on Thursday but today is gorgeous.

Today started with some early risers on a fishing expedition that resulted in Allyn and David knocking out the “catching” requirement for Fishing Merit Badge.  This resulted in the idea for a fish fry to supplement our campfire brats planned for the evening.  Allyn, Mr. Harrison, Mark, and Mr. Childers all contributed with a total of six largemouth bass that were prepared for the fire per Fishing Merit Badge requirements.

The Old Goats started their morning with some zip line drops after breakfast and the Flaming Arrows demonstrated their knowledge at Eagle Quest.  After merit badge work was complete and some letters home were sent, we had a great meal on the campfire.  The campfire meal was topped off with a Dutch Oven Birthday cake for Garret who is now 12 years old. 

Garret, “Happy Birthday Toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo  you!”

After dinner the whole camp was opened up to something like a free-for- all and all of the activities were open. Waterfront, Shooting Sports, Cope and Climbing, and Handycraft were all available. The Old Goats volunteered to clean up while the scouts took off for all kinds of high adventure.  The camp is very quiet now.  We’re whooped and it’s bed time.  Tune in tomorrow for more.

    I’m curious, does Alyn have to eat the fish in order to get a merit badge? Thanks for keeping us up to date out here in Vermont. We look forward to the daily postings!

      Liesl – You are welcome. NO, Allyn doesn’t have to eat it. All the fishing merit badge requirements call for is that he catch and cook a fish. A few years ago, my son was working on the fishing merit badge and he caught, cooked, and ate his fish. He cooked it wrapped in foil and seasoned with butter, salt, and pepper.
