Mike and Michael visited the Boy Scout National Jamboree in July and August. Mike traveled with the Chief Okemos Council Jamboree troop number 1121. Michael (dad) was a volunteer worker at the Jamboree, working in Action Center "B".

The most difficult obstacle on the course, the "Possum Crawl". You started on top of the log, flipped underneath, crawled along the bottom, then you had to get back on top of the log. Very few could do it.
One of the many bars to jump or crawl over on the obstacle course.
