On March 13th – 15th, Troop 325 backpacked to Kirkwood Ranch along the Snake River in Hell's Canyon. It was windy but, amazingly (at least for a trip that I am on), we didn't have any rain. We worked on knots, tarp set-ups, first aid for snakebite and poisonous plants and map skills. We also celebrated Michael's and Liam's birthday.
Ross and Nathan, our two newest Scouts, joined us for their first trip and did a great job.
Michael Andrade led the trip and, sadly, we found out that he and his family were moving back to Texas. Michael, you will be sorely missed . . . good luck in where your footsteps lead.
