Rich & Brian -

I'm concerned about all of the cleaning, polishing, sorting, organizing, counting, scrubbing, assembling, etc that Katrina is doing lately with our troop gear and trailer.



The food just won't have that ... that..... "flavor" anymore. And that familiar smell will probably be gone too - how are we going to find our way in the dark?

We won't be able to find those few things that have always been "just tossed into the corner" over there... (along with everything else, of course - the trailer had only one big corner anyway.)

We'll miss the adventure of finding a troop item that was "lost" for years.

We'll probably be expected to "put the lid down" on all those rubbermaid boxes now.

When I'm looking for some Pepper, I'll no longer have the ability to find it in a loose layer on the bottom of one of the food boxes. Same for coffee, and peanut butter ( and those PB&J sanswiches were GOOD!).

The first thing we'll see when we open the trailer door is a broom and a "Your Mother Does Not Live Here" sign (At least I hope the sign will be on the inside.)



We'll no longer need to spend a good part of our enterprising day (such as at Lily Bay) creating a Rube-Goldberg apparatus to hold the mis-matched globes & lanterns together for light - which we'd have to dis-mantle in the morning anyway 'cause some of the parts were needed to make coffee.

No more disappointed scouts who recieved the "Short Straw": the tent sack with 3-1/2 tent poles, two tent fly's, several old socks, but no tent.


PS - Katrina - I don't know what we'd do without you!! Thanks for all the help!!!

Let us know what we can do.

That's ok I will go through them. I went through the chuck boxes today. I sorted-cleaned -recleaned and bought stuff to even them out. I washed the rubbermaid kitchen boxes and sorted through them. I made a list of what I need to buy. Rain tomorrow so I can do that. Katrina

  PS. nice shelves!!!!!!!!!!

The tents were organized at one of the last meetings. Not knowing that, I tossed them all into one pile in the trailer. Rich & I talked about this and think that an afternoon of Wyatt's & Bucsko's with the tents can make sense of it. Is it possible for you to bring all tents back to Wyatt's?
