Mike and Michael journed to Ontario, Canada with Troop 109 to camp at Pinery Provincial Park from September 17 - 19. The camping was great, but the raccoons in the park were amazingly unafraid! They wondered through our camp and came close enough to touch. It was rather unsettling. The scouts decided to sing, which drove the raccoons away!

All of us journeyed to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania with Troop 109. We drove to Gettysburg on June 11. We camped in the McMillan Woods Youth Campground and hiked the Gettysburg Heritage Trail. The scouts enjoyed recreating Pickett's Charge! Most of the hiking was in open areas, but one of our trips went through a wooded area and we had to ford a stream. We stayed until June 14, and then returned home.
Troop 109 visited the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. We drove to Dayton, Ohio on April 23 and returned home on April 25. There is a campground for scout groups on the base, which we were allowed to use. It was fun, but VERY noisy! We were awakened by jets taking off each morning.
