On October 15th, Troop 95 left for a one-day backpacking trip at the Pinhoti Trail with frame packs loaded down with tents, backpacking stoves, tarps, food, and water bottles.  Because of the drought, we couldn’t start a wood fire, so we improvised with an inflatable LED lantern on top of a Nalgene bottle. The scouts had a great time debating on whether the moon is made of cheese or just a hologram projected by the Soviet Union. Mr. Boyd told us the tale of Jack O’ [the] Lantern, and used a hollowed out rootabaga with a face carved in it and a rope handle as an example. Over all, the trip was AWESOME.
