Right, sheri, thats the idea, but how does it actually work out in practice? Do those people go on to understand how to enjoy the wilderness in solitude or can they only enjoy it with the social aspect, or does it even matter, I guess they enjoy the wilderness in groups in the same way I enjoy it a...

That gives me an idea. Does being part of the boy scouts actually diminish the wilderness experience? Seems to me it might. After all one of my favorite things about the wilderness is that I don't have to share it with a big group of people (usually...) perhaps associating wild-craft with socializi...

Giovanna, cool pictures! Thanks for sharing them. Nighthiker, I could have used a black light on a night hike out of Peter's canyon. While scrambling over boulders I got way too close to a scorpion. Neither of us was hurt in the encounter but I wondered how many other close calls I've had without k...

Boy Scouts

I believe that as long as the parents raise their child and the Boy Scout leader/club teach the boy scouting ways, then it's fine. As long as the leader does not inject "his" views/morals/religious beliefs, then it's a worthy club for a child. I am in favor of the Boy Scouts when they stick to what ...

Re: I think that I figured it out.

Much has changed over the last twenty years (and more) Men now, much like women are being evaluated more and more on physical qualities. With this increased discussion, I have noticed an unprecedented honesty about the importance of men (ahem) measuring up . Perhaps the increase in knife ownership ...

Being an X Air-force meteorologist, I wait impatiently each year for the monsoon season. The last couple of years have been somewhat dissapointing. Lots of dust, little rain. For the newcomers to the area, here is an excellant resource to learn more about the arizone monsoon: http://ag.arizona.edu/...

This will be my first monsoon season/storm.

I love your post. It made me do a bit of thinking about each decade of my life and how it fits in to what you are asking. When I was 10, I was the neighbor lady's child sitter. I loved it. I would go down and watch her two children while she ran errands, went grocery shopping, etc. Do you have any t...

'bout the only MAJOR positive I can say about Philly is that about +/- 227 years ago some Philly folks had the fortitude and foresight to design, fight for and implement a free country. After reading the article, I would say it's fair to say that about +/- 226 years ago, "most" of the intelligent p...

Does anyone know what the penalty/fine is for not paying the ^##@*** fee? I was wondering that too? But I'm not the type not to pay the fee, but wonder if others are ticketed and for how much and etc. Maybe that's part of the fee, the cost to enforce it! UGH!
