On Saturday, four Scouts from Troop 658 enjoyed a snowy trail hike and foil packet meals around the campfire at Grand Isle State Park.  A few rank requirements were met along the way, saws & axes were used, and although first aid was practiced when dear old Mr. Buker "broke his leg", no actual injuries were sustained. :)  And everyone Survived!  Thanks to all for making it a fun event.
