The New Office Hunter….

We have a guy in our office that has become an "official hunter".  He has bagged both a Deer and Bird Hunting within his first week of picking up the sport…. his weapon of choice… a Buick!

He bagged a dear and that was the inspiration for the "NASCAR Black Out Grill".  He followed that up two days later by hunting birds (see below)


Now tell me… if you’re Mr. Bird… that’s got to smart

3rd Annual Eagle Scout’s & Dad’s Camp out

We have an "Adult" camp out in January for the Eagle Scouts and their Dad’s.  We make arrangements to go to a scout camp for a weekend of cabin camping… the primary focus is for the adults to be able to share a weekend of camping and the Eagle Scouts if available are welcome to tag along.  This year we were at the Cedar Cabin at Camp Tuckahoe near Dillsburg, PA (our local Council Camp).

It was good to see everyone since we don’t often have a chance to get together anymore…. we had two guys that went off to college about 5 years ago and worked all their summers at Philmont.  We had a late night of catching up… it was good.  Friday night, we had Chili and Hot Dogs and played cards.  It seemed like we could not get the cabin warm with the wood stove… most of the wood was either green or wet.

On Saturday, we took a field trip to the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA.  They have done a really nice job of displaying artifacts and they have multiple presentations throughout the museum that explain things.  I would highly recommend this if you have the opportunity to make this stop.

Once we got back to the cabin, it was time for more games and / or a nap before dinner.  For dinner we had chicken, potatoes, salad, and cobbler.  I was in charge of the cobbler…. I love that stuff, mostly because I get to use my Dutch Ovens.

Happy New Year

With Christmas done and the holiday done… it’s time to get some rest.  I think that the dog (A.K.A. Stupid) has the right idea.
