Camping on the beach!


April saw us head down to Assateague Island, where we camped on the beach under the sta… clouds.  After nearly blowing away Saturday morning, Troop 48 headed down to Virginia and Chincoteague Island, where we visited Misty, climbed the lighthouse, and hiked out to find some horses in the marshes!

Tim Smith – Eagle Scout

Congrats to Tim Smith for earning his Eagle Scout rank back the end of February.  For his project, Tim resurfaced the Red Lake Trail at Batsto in Wharton State Forest.  He also had a great run in Troop 48, including being one of the scouts who went to Washington State last summer.

Tim becomes our 120th Eagle Scout!  Congrats again Tim!

Front Page News!

Who has six thumbs and made the front page of The Berlin Sun in February? Troop 48 did, or at least one of our patrols.  Fame and fortune, here we co… I mean, great job guys!

Thank you to Kristin over at the Sun for such a great article on the Klondike Derby!

Fun times at Rodney this weekend!

Had an absolutely perfect weekend to be staying at Camp Rodney down on the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.  Went on a five mile “hike” that was more an excuse to explore the nooks and crannies of that stretch of the Chesapeake Bay. Then we capped it off with a rainy night playing Risk, Monopoly, and card games.

Next trip is March 10 to 12 where we’ll be biking out at Valley Forge! See everyone then!
