Thread: Scout Dad

  1. #1

    Scout Dad

    Howdy from SouthWest Fl, I've lurked only a couple of days before joining this fine forum. I have a scout who reached 2nd class in just 6 months of scouting. My son has been in scouts from bobcat on. He has Elos Danlos which is not a deal breaker (unless contact sports is your passion) lucky for me my son loves the outdoors... can I get an Amen.

    I had him in a hobo hammock yesterday prepping for an extreme campout. I must admit that I had initiated a couple of suspension techniques I picked up from the contibuters here on the forum... thank you folks for that.[IMG][/IMG]

    Thank you in advance for reading and dealing in the future with some of my noob questions. jander.

    Hey scouter, welcome to HF ... a lot of great scout news here and good job getting your boy outside. I got just over 30 years scouting youth and adult combined, using a hammock extended my backpacking career as I grew out (not up...never up)

    Hey welcome to the gang. Two boys in scouts and a girl in girl scouts. Mom is a girl scout leader and I am ASM for the boys. This is a great place to find references to help the boys hang.

    Hello from a fellow Scouter. I'm a scoutmaster for a troop in Lilburn. Sounds like your son is on the fast track! My son earned his Eagle at 14.

    Like djminnesota and FatDaddy said, using a hammock greatly increased my enjoyment. My son and I started hammocking about 1 1/2 years ago and I've never slept better.
