2013 Trails Day & Scout Expo

We kicked off the Trails Day Weekend with some father/son time. I’m a member of the Connecticut Forest & Park Association Board of Directors and Horst Engineering/Thread Rolling Inc. are big CFPA supporters, so I wanted to stop by the first of two Bolton hikes.

We didn’t do the two mile hike, but we were there for the history and introductions by Rod Parlee and Hans DePold (Town Historian). I always learn something new when I hear Hans speak. Last week, as a prize for winning the Historic category of the Bolton Conservation Commission Photo Contest, I got a Bolton history book authored by Hans. Good stuff!

After visiting the hike and shooting photos, we went to the Connecticut Rivers Council Scout Expo at the Hebron Lions Club Fairgrounds. Our son will enter Tiger Cubs this summer and this was his first event as a prospective Cub Scout. Last night, we pulled out a big bin that I’ve had in storage. It holds all of my Scouting stuff, including my Eagle Scout award and memorabilia. It was a lot of fun to show this to our kids.

The expo was fantastic with lots of cool stuff and it brought back a lot of memories. I especially like the history of Scouting exhibit. We did some outdoor activities including fire starting and we did a bunch of crafts including leather working and copper tin foil impressions. Let the weekend begin!

Start of the @root66raceseries #DomnarskiFarm Junior 12-18 year old race. #root66raceseries #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #mountainbike Beautiful June day in #Massachusetts For me, the #westrocksuperprestige highlight is always the youngest junior girls and boys. Here is the start of last night's Junior 9-11 year old Short Track #mountainbike race. This is the next generation of #cycling enthusiasts. @the_ccap #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #horstspikes #mountainbiking 🚵‍♀️🏆❤️ Not bad. Third place in the series for #singlespeed division after doing two of the four #westrocksuperprestige #mountainbike races. Fun just to ride strongly. #teamhorstsports #horstspikes @horsteng #mountainbiking @seven_cycles #sevencycles Incredible June night. One day after the #solstice for the #westrocksuperprestige finale. @the_ccap @horsteng #teamhorstsports #teamhorstjuniorsquad #mountainbiking #solstice #railtrail ride:  #teamhorstjuniorsquad #teamhorstsports #hopriverstateparktrail #mountainbike The second (our first) #windingtrails Summer Off-Road #Triathlon Series race of the year was a big success. Three Livingston's raced including @trailrunningmom and the first "Grand Feast" of the season with the Schulz Clan helped us refuel. #teamhorstsports #mountainbiking #trailrunning I ran the #greylocktrailrace on #fathersday and @trailrunningmom loosened her legs after #manitousrevenge by running the 5K with Little D. Shep took 5+ minutes off of last year's time. #mountgreylock The Western Massachusetts Athletic Club had to share #greylockglen with the #harrypotter festival, which was kind of crazy. It was a weird combination of people. I'm sticking with he  #trailrunning community. @trailrunningmom finished #manitousrevenge 54 miles in 14:41:32. Fantastic! She is pumped and primed for #hardrock100 next month. #teamhorstsports #shenipsitstriders #pursuitstrong #pursuitfitness #trailrunning @ultraspire #ultraspire @altrarunning #altrarunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains 🏃🏻⛰ Ben Nephew took the 54 rugged mile #manitousrevenge in 10 hours and 57 minutes. He said it was super slippery. @mountainpeakfitness #mountainpeakfitness #trailrunning #ultrarunning #catskillsmountains
