After taking our Lantern and Cook stove permits we wanted to try out cooking a meal outdoors. While we were there we had also planned for a game of Capture the Flag. Turns out that Capture the Flag all started during the Civil War. The opposing army was deemed victorious by there opponents if they captured their flag.
The 6 boys consumed 5 lbs of bacon, dozen hot dogs, and 2 lb ground beef for burgers. There were a few raw carrots consumed as well to help maintain that balanced diet.
The boys discovered a frozen pond and after unsuccessfully trying to break through the ice, were turned to playing a round of hockey. A small chunk of wood became the puck and a couple logs made the goal posts. Ben side of the rink left a few large holes in the ice behind him so he had to be a bit more careful during activity behind the net. Sam made off with the puck a couple of times, but he did allow the boys to catch him.

|So this is base camp eh!||When do we eat?||We could sample, you know, just a bit of bacon. Just to make sure the equipment works of course.||Hey look a pond, lets try break through the ice?|
|Seems pretty thick to me.||Is there's a fish under me?||Deep in enemy territory||Cell phone image sent to opposing camp.|
|I'm blending in, you don't see me.||Is the coast clear?||The Bacon apprenticeship program begins||Bacon...|
|Is there any more bacon?||Down to the last 2 pounds.||Nothing like frying in it's own juices.||and when its fresh hot out of the pan.|
|ooo, I can suck the juices out. Ah, so good.||Just need to wash that one back with a bit of water here.||Bacon fat works great as a lip balm.||Ah, double patty, double dog, BACON burger.|
|Who ever can split like this is the goalie.||Foot off my hand please, Oh that's gonna hurt.||was that the puck or the stump coming through the ice?||Oh, what a save!|
|He scarified his body, but he saved it.||Where's that hole in the ice again?||Shoot it already before the dog gets it again.|
|Making the break into enemy territory.||He's got our flag!||The victor's.||
Stairs are for woosies...
