Oil Creek Adirondack Backpacking

On March 28-30, 2014, Troop 59 went on a spring backpacking trip.  We got to camp on Friday night, gathered firewood and prepared our Adirondacks for the night.  After we were done setting up, we ate cracker barrel and planned our route for the next morning.  After this, we went to bed.  The next morning, we awoke at around 6:45 and ate breakfast.  After breakfast, we broke camp and began our trip.  We began hiking at around 8.  The weather was beautiful.  Our hike was mostly downhill, and it was also icy too.  On our way hiking to our camp, we saw a very old graveyard and there were people buried from the War of 1812.  There was a waterfall we stopped at.  We also saw another troop and talked with them for a little bit.  Once we got to our camp, 2 scouts went to get water down at the river.  We ate lunch when we got back.  It started to rain that afternoon, and it didn’t stop.  We remained in our Adirondack for the night, and by morning, there was a few inches of snow on the ground.  We broke camp and hiked back to our Friday night camp site, where the cars were.  We got in to our cars and went back to Erie.  Overall, the trip was fun and there were no serious injuries

Ninja’s Service

The Ninja’s patrol fought the harsh weather on January 25, 2014, as we carried wood from outside an elderly couple’s home, into their garage. This was of the many service projects acquired through OLP Church Parishioners.

Klondike Derby 2014

On January 18, 2014, Troop 59 went on a Klondike Derby to Custaloga town. There, the scouts unpacked their two sleds and did the many group activities that were available to them. Some of the activities included starting a fire, pushing the sleds up steep hills, pulling  their sleds on ziplines across a long ditch, and more. The scouts decided not to participate in the sled race and didn’t wait for the award ceremony, we were anxious to get home.
