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!

Last night, we slept in a tent and dinner came out of our snack bag. Tonight, we have a real bed and dinner @eatfarewell was fantastic. I made progress towards replenishing the 4,852 calories that I burned at the #promiseland50k ++ #eatfarewell #vegan #tricycle washingtondc πŸƒπŸ»πŸš΄πŸ½ #promiseland50k was hot and hard. Both @trailrunningmom and I suffered badly. I told her that I'm "sticking with cycling" from now on! We didn't even check the results, which is fine because we are happy to just have finished. It was a beautiful course. It totaled 34 miles with 14,000 feet of elevation gain and loss. #ultrarunning #trailrunning #shenipsitstriders #teamhorstsports #virginia #blueridgemountains @trailrunningmom at #naturalbridgestatepark #bear Start of the @root66raceseries Junior Cat 3 #FatTireClassic #mountainbike #root66 Our kids have some classmates earning #taekwondo #tkd #blackbelt #bling at today's belt test. πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ Small goalie.
