I've always enjoyed two-nighters makes it feel worth it to haul out the gear and setup camp.

What I like about the one nighters is that they teach you what to bring, what not to bring, and how to pack it properly. If it takes 4 hrs to set up camp then you've brought too much, unless it's a big pow wow style camp. We're preparing for long range backpacking trips, so our goal is minimalism while still having what you need.

I like one nighters but enjoy getting away for two nights and a full day.

I like those too. I haven't done one of those since I took Phillip Jr to the mountains last year. Hopefully I'll be able to do it in April. I've got a big job I'm doing at Boeing, but it's going surprisingly smoothly. I had originally told the guys I might have to cancel the two nighter trip to the mountains, but I might be able to make it happen! Hopefully... we'll see.

We do more of the 24 hour campouts and backpacks. However still do several 2 nighters. I have found people get crankier the more days you put on them. GRIN!

In my younger days we would haul out a whole pow wow setup and set it all up and camp over night and then load it all up and be back in 24 hours. LOTS OF work.

The bring your own cook your own or go hungry is the best of the best. It makes everyone do their part and if they have anyone to blame it's themselves.

I've done the byocyoogh with older boys. For hikes we always do one nighters. In the past in Potomac we did 2 nighters with a perimeter and gate entry for pow wow. For the outpost campout we usually rented a cabin and did it for one night.

A young man I've known for years is graduating from HS in May. Unbeknownst to him, his dad has set up a special event tonight. I'm one of a few guys that have been lined up to share portions of 1 Cor 16: 13-14 with him. Afterwards, we'll eat dinner.

Good idea. Dad has raised him up for 18 years, and we're going to reinforce it with one last hurrah. On a related note, I once helped with a "gentile's" bar mitzvah, though it went by a different name, something like bar barakka. The 13-year old crossed into manhood on a rope bridge I built between two trees.

A rite of passage in our modern times is lacking. Maybe getting boys ready to be a young "man" at 13 helped them be more responsible. Nowadays we prolong childhood well into HS. By that time childish immature behaviour can get you charged as an adult instead of a juvenile.

Into high school!?! This culture prolongs childhood longer than that. Doesn't obamacare say you can stay one your parents health plan until your mid 20's? And people spend all kinds of good money trying to "look" younger. Youthfulness is idolized while age and wisdom is demonized. Foolishness.

Michelle is quoted as saying she's all for face lifts, and her hubby has never reached out to Jimmy Carter for advice. (On second thought, maybe Barrack is showing wisdom there.)

They're working overtime in all areas to glean more useful idiots... I just pray that the millennials are waking up the failed policies of the left and we pull out of this nose dive. If it's not too late already that is. Wink

Had an awesome day! The boys did great this morning playing in the band this morning. It's really fun teaching your kids to play instruments and then having the opportunity to have the band develop into something nice. As I've told others, out of all the people I've played in bands with, I'm having the most fun playing with my kids!

We also had a great COA tonight combined with the AHG's. Having them in the outpost (we're all one outpost even though different organizations) is really nice. The girls are doing well and looking forward to our first combined camp.

Snowed plenty yesterday by morning the Walmart lot was an ice rink. I stepped out of my car and fell back into my seat. Lucky for me I had some snow right by my door to step on and walk around my door before shutting it. By 4 ice and snow mostly melted away temps in 50s. 

No word yet on when they'll be conducting interviews for meat supervisor. Its been vacated due to promotionof its  supervisor to fresh zone merch supervisor. My supervisor will likely get it and slide over there. The frozen dairy supervisor role will be opening.
