We prepared for our backpacking camping trip scheduled for Saturday morning. We'll be taking a train to the Indiana Dunes in Porter, Indiana for an overnight. Everyone participating will carry all required personal gear and share the load of the group food and equipment. There will be one supply car. All transportation to and from the camping site will be by foot, so this is one big hike with full backpacks. If needed, younger scouts can put some of their supplies in the car to lighten their load. Scoutmaster Howie's Scoutmaster Minute probed the term "obedient" in the scout oath since tomorrow is the planned high school walk out of school for 17 minutes to honor the 17 students recently killed in school by a gunman. Scoutmaster Howie encouraged that the word obedient still means that one should do the right thing like in David Thoreau's "Civil Disobedience."
