Last Week i went to NYLT which stands for National Youth Leadership Training. We had a lot of fun learning about leadership skills and camping. The best parts of the trip are secret so by Scout Honor i am not aloud to tell you. But the worst part about the trip were the flies. The flies are an endangered species that bite.Anyways i had a lot of fun and i am hopping they choose me to be a Staff for next year!

Fish Creek Wednesday, Jun 15 2011
Last weekend i went to a training backpacking trip of Fish creek in preparation for a 50 miler trip. It was a good 2.5 miles to our campsite, where we set up our camp and made our beds for the night. The next morning we woke up early for a 14 mile hike to the base of MT. San Gorgonio. When our hike was over i made some good Mountain House freeze dried food and went to sleep.The next morning we woke up at 5:30 to begin our decent down the hill. It took us 50 minutes to get down the hill, because we sprinted down it.
Next week i will be going to San Diego to go to a NYLT leadership Camp, To learn some leadership Skills.

Bogart Park Troop 11 Tuesday, Mar 29 2011

Last Weekend our troop went to Bogart park to prepare for Pop Nye.
When we got there our Senior Patrol Leader told us to not set up our tents, because of expecting rain. As soon as the adults set up there sites of the events the senior patrol leader told us to start. The first event our patrol did was fire building because it was very cold. We built a fire in under 15 minutes which is horrible. So after we did the other events we went back to fire building to get a better time. After some tips from our former scoutmaster Mr. Welsh we made a fire in under 10 minutes.
After our patrol was done i decided to do it by myself for practice for Super Scout. Super scout is A competition within Pop Nye for scouts first class and up to use boy scout abilities efficiently. I finished my fire in 23 minutes. I know i will do better when Pop Nye comes.
Chili Cookoff Win Thursday, Mar 10 2011
On Saturday March 5 the Rhinos took home the fourth Golden Spoon in a role.
I was the head chef in my patrol and used a brilliant recipe from my favorite T.V. chef Bobby flay.
It was a black bean Chili with top Sirloin and a avocado relish.
Once we started the competition all the others patrols knew they were done. In our patrol we focus on one award and one award only and that is to win the the golden spoon.
I am now part of the new Troop 11 venturing patrol i will post soon about new adventures in Venturing.

Last weekend I went on my first trip to Fiesta Island.
At Fiesta Island we were ridding our bikes and exploring San Diego.A lot of us had a lot of fun, but one funny story i heard at he end of trip made me laugh so much i had to tell you.
One the anteaters(youngest patrol in the troop) was always in the back of the bike ride trip I later found out that his brakes were broken and didn’t tell anyone. Someone asked him what did you do when you had to stop he said put my feet down and pray.

On August 25 2010 I became a Star Scout ! When I was going through my Board of review they asked me leadership questions like what would you do if a Scout didn’t listen to you or Would you want to earn a merit badge or just have the patch. I wont answer these questions now because i don’t want any scouts taking my answers, but i did a Great job and earned my Star rank . I just have to wait until October to get my patch.
