Canoeing, Camping, Kayaking, Oh My!

(Caleb S. — Life) What a great way to start off the new Scout year!  We decided to kick the excitement into overdrive and hit the rapids of Okatoma Creek.  This 13 mile trip down the creek was a great mix of relaxing, fun, scary, and exciting.  We went down waterfalls, through rapids, around gently flowing turns, flipped our boats, and most importantly we laughed the entire way.  Yes, we were exhausted, but it was well worth all the effort.  Not only did we get to have some fun, but we also completed one of the Camping Merit Badge requirements, helping us get closer to earning Eagle!

P.S. The walking tacos and the profound cake waiting for us were a perfect way to end the trip!
