Unhappy Campers

I’ve been reading these stories in the Times Union about the Boy Scouts. It’s an exhaustively researched series of articles that are running in the Hearst papers nationwide that allege the organization’s involved in improper land sales, logging deals, and lavish executive compensation. Naturally, they had a field day quoting Boy Scout precepts like the Outdoor Code to make their point. It just so happens that I spent the weekend at a Boy Scout camp in the southern Adirondacks  —and as a reminder of the scathing newspaper stories, a logging truck rumbled through the camp as we waited to get into our cabin Friday night.

Anyway, this is not about that, this is about this: do you guys from Troop (redacted) in (redacted) think you could use the outhouse behind your cabin next time instead of the one next to ours? Thank you very much.

EDITOR’S NOTE: I took out the identity of that other troop. Sorry… that was completely unnecessary.

Yes, that's snow.
