Now that we have the first camp out of the way and the kids know what to expect, we're going out this evening on a more challenging camp. We'll have to canoe across a small lake, portage over a short land crossing, then fight the wind on a large open lake to get to our cabin. The kids are all sleeping in tents while I get the cozy cabin with another leader.

We headed out at 6pm. 6 canoes in total. It was a short paddle to a short portage then across a bay to the cabin. The kids slept in tents while we had the cabin. Beautiful cold fall morning. The scouts are making breakfast now.

Good day everyone. Yesterday was cold and snowing and raining and windy which cancelled a lot of our plans for the day. We had originally planned to head out in the canoes for a bit. Instead, the 12 of us huddled in the cabin around the stove telling stories and singing campfire songs. This morning after a long sleepless night of snoring in the cabin, we packed up, made a yummy breakfast of couscous and various dried fruits and spices, then headed out on the water to our the portage taking us from one lake to another then had a 15 minute paddle to the landing. Despite the weather, we managed to teach the kids valuable lessons to survive in the outdoors.

Nice Brian, but what is that last photo?
It's hard to make out on the phone.

That last photo is a black fox that was watching me as I walked to get the truck. First time I've seen a black fox

Just a side note. Back in the early 90s, I was in a high school program similar to scouts. We did canoe trips in the fall and spring, winter trips, orienteering in the Bush etc. I've been wanting to get back out in the woods on a canoe trip since I was 19. Being involved with scouts has finally allowed me to do it.
