So the saying goes… “It’s not a troop (insert number) campout unless it rains!”
Our story was with a scout who hated to get wet, muddy and bit by mosquitos… I mean really didn’t like it. He got thrown into all three within 10 minutes of our High Adventure trip to Boundary Waters. After a bit of grumbling and complaining the scout’s attitude was draining on the whole team. One of the adult leaders came up to the scout and said, “Sometimes you just have to embrace the suck and get on with it. We are here for the next 5 days… Lets role.” —- and so our troop motto was born on a slippery granite slope, in the rain with packs and canoes on our backs.
