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!

The Return of Pictures!

It is with great pleasure that I announce the return of the pictures archive to the website. With thousands on thousands of photographs (just around 310GB) spanning the fifty years plus years the troop has been around, this has been no small task. I hope everyone finds the new setup relatively error free and easy to use.
