Wild Wind
Wow! It's amazing how much energy there is in the air around us! Saturday morning, the wind from the south-southeast was gusting to over 40mph driving rain. By mid-day, the rain had stopped but the wind continued. This made for excellent flag etiquette training at the Camporee with those flags just whipping straight out at attention.
By nightfall, the wind had completely stopped, the nearly full moon was out and it was a most excellent night for viewing stars and satellite hunting. A few of us took advantage and slept outside our tents with no bugs, rain, or wind.
Sunday morning, the wind picked up again, but this time almost 180 degrees opposite from the day before. Amazing! So much power. It was entertaining to see a couple scouts from another troop chasing a tent tumbling across a field for 50 yards or so - we were too far away to help. I've got to remember to keep a spool of kite thread in my backpack just for days like these.

Scout On!
