Troops 64/4064 had a successful last campout of the year under the cool and damp redwoods of the Boulder Creek Scout Reservation near Santa Cruz. We went over the Firem’n Chit, checked off skills requirements for 10 participants ranging in rank from Scout through Life, and marked several complete for Scout, Tenderfoot, and First Class.
The temperatures were in the 40s and 50s but Chili Mac, expertly charred Burgers, awesome Peach Cobbler, and hot chocolate kept us warm. Plus the jokes at the campfire were flying so fast and so horribly bad that nobody was thinking about the cold. There were more than a few belly groaners.
We highly recommend the Zulu campsite. It’s a long walk from the parking lot but quiet and secluded. Although there were 120 other Scouts there for a Trail to First Class campout, we hardly noticed them.
