b. Cit. In Nation – one or two requirements at most

c. Cooking – one requirement of cooking with family

d. Wilderness Survival – one requirement of doing a fire by flint and steel

We arrived in camp around 12:30AM mountain time because we went on the right road but kept going up the mountain and missed the turn-off. I had no idea the bus could make it that far up the mountain. The weather was beautiful and the merit badge classes actually went smooth. We had several discipline issues mainly from Gettles and Dawson. We had scouts who decided to put their names on the walls in one of the buildings. Randy Nuttall went into Taos to get paint and the graffiti areas were repainted. We had three boys decide to bring fireworks and pop them in camp, which was in Carson National Forest. All disciplinary issues were dealt with in camp by disciplinary boards set by myself. We played a kickball tournament and awarded a trophy to the wining team. Overall, it wasn’t too bad. The camp and facilities were excellent. We took many photos and hopefully they will be posted on the web soon so everyone can view them. Next camp is Wilderness in Questa, NM.
